Problem

You are beachcombing on summer vacation and find a silver bracelet. You take it to the jeweler and he tells you that it is silver plated and will give you $10 for it. You do not want to be swindled so you take the bracelet to your chemistry lab and find its mass on a balance (80.0 g). To measure the volume you place the bracelet in a graduated cylinder, containing 10.0 mL of water at 20 oC. The final volume in the graduated cylinder after the bracelet has been added is 17.61 mL. The density of silver at 20 oC is 10.5 g/cm3 and 1 cm3= 1 mL.

What can you conclude about the identity of the metal in the bracelet?
