The amount of water displaced by the block is the volume of the block.

so (volume of water with block in it)-(original volume of water)= volume of block

What is the reason why a granite block is mostly empty space?

A granite block is like all matter - mostly empty space because the atoms in the matter are themselves mostly empty space. The nucleus of an atom occupies a tiny volume compared to the volume of the entire atom.

A block is placed in a tank of water and floats as shown The water level rises to height ฮ”h1 The block is then taken out and a block of the same weight but smaller volume that also floats is placed?

Archimedes principle states that a floating body displaces its own weight of water. The density of the water is fixed so the volume displaced by a floating body is is the same for floating bodies of the same weight. The water level will still be delta h1 as the volume of the block is not relevant to the amount of water displaced.

What part of the block of wood remains immersed in water of density 1000kg per cm cube when the block of wood placed in water has density 700 Kg per m cube?

-- The aggregate density of the wood block is 700/1000 = 0.7 the density of water. -- So, as soon as the wood has displaced 0.7 of its volume in water, it has displaced its entire weight in water, and floats. -- The wood floats with 0.7 of its volume below the surface and 0.3 of its volume above it.

Are butcher block countertops cheaper than granite countertops?

Butcher block counters are cheaper than granite, however not by much. Butcher block ranges from $40-$65 per square foot and granite is around $40-$100 per square foot.

A block of wood has a density of 53 gcm3 What fraction of its volume is submerged in oil of density 8 gcm3?

The weight of a block is equal to 0.53 time V for volume times g. The weight of the oil displaced is equal to n V time 0.8 times g. The answer is 0.8 g/cm3.

What force is needed to keep a wooden block of density 720 kg and volume 1.0 m3 under water?

Using the rough rule-of-thumb: 1 liter of water = 1 kg.-- The block sinks until it has displaced 720 liters of water. At that point,the mass of the displaced water has the same weight as the mass of theblock has, and the block sinks no further.-- The block still has 280 liters of its volume above water. If that were submerged,another 280 kg of water would be displaced.-- The additional 280 kg of water would weigh (280 x 9.8) = 2,744 newtons (617.3 pounds).That much additional buoyant force would fight the effort to submerge the block.It takes an additional 2,744 newtons (617.3 pounds) to keep the block under water.

How do you calculate if a block of wood will float in water or not?

If the density of the block is less than the density of water, then the block will float. Density of water is close to 1 gram per cubic centimeter. So measure the block and calculate its volume (Length x Width x Height). Use a scale to find the block's mass. Then divide mass/volume to calculate density. If you've measured in grams and centimeters, then the units will be g/cm³, then compare this to 1 g/cm³.

How are weight and volume related?

Weight is a term used to refer to mass that is under the influence of gravity, of a gravimetric field. Volume is a term used to refer to the amount of space (the 3D kind) that an object, a "mass" takes up. The two are related by the term density. Density is the weight of a given substance that occupies a designated volume of space. Take a block of granite. You know, the rock. It's heavy. A block of it that is one cubic foot in volume weighs about 171.7 pounds. That's a lot, huh? Yup. It's heavy stuff. Dense stuff. It's density is about 171.7 pounds per cubic foot. (Yes, we averaged it out a bit, but no biggie.) If our block of granite weighs 171.7 pounds per cubic foot, it weighs about 2.75 grams per cubic centimeter. That's 2.75g/cc. See how we wrote it? It says the same thing. And, presto! we've got this nice little package, that 2.75g/cc, and now we can compare our granite to something else. You're ready to take on something we call specific gravity. Good luck. Not that you'll need it. You can handle it. It's a piece of cake.

How could you find the volume of wood using a displacement can?

The piece of wood will float (partially submerged) in water. Filling up a displacement can with water and letting the water drain at the sprout is the starting point. When the water stops draining, place a dry (empty) measuring cylinder to collect water coming out of the sprout from here on. Gently lower the wood block on the water. It floats. Gently push the block down until it is just submerged. The volume in the displacement can is the volume of the wood block. The tricky part is how to push the block down without agitating the water, making the reading inaccurate. One possibility is to have a box of known weights around. Carefully place standards on the block without the weights toppling over -- starting with a heavier standard and proceeding to lighter standards (available down to 1 mg). If the standard makes the block submerge below the top surface, start over. Some volume uncertainty will remain for one run. Repeating the exercise and averaging the data will lower the uncertainty. If the piece of wood is irregular -- not a regular shape, we can try the following. find a weight that will let the block submerge completely in water with a string. Measure the volume of water displaced. Then do the weight and string without the piece of wood and measure the volume of water displaced. The difference in volume is the answer for the piece of wood. Again, repeating the experiment reduces the measurement error.
