Density - Unit 2.1

Author: Bob Grove
Description:

Unit 2 is a unit that covers density, scientific notation, and  significant figures. Unit 2.1 is on density.

After completing this tutorial you should understand the following:

  • Be able to describe density in terms of mass and volume
  • Be able to describe density mathematically
  • Be able to calculate density mathematically when given mass and volume
  • Be able to explain why one liquid floats on another

We will also do a lab in the classroom to help you understand the concept.

This tutorial contains a powerpoint on density as well as a link to a youtube video on density.
