The mass = its volume.

This is true if the mass of water is measured in grams and the volume is measured in cc and the density of water is 1 gram/cc. Depending on temperature, 1 gram/cc is a good approximation.

In general, the relationship between water (or anything else) and its volume is mass/volume = density.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the relationship between mass density and volume?

Mass is a body of matter of indefinite shape and considerable size. Volume is the 3-dimensional space enclosed by a closed boundary. Density is the degree to which something is filled. The relationship between mass, volume and density is they are all connected, as if an object has one of these characteristics, it has all three.

What is the mass density and volume of a grape?

The mass of a grape is 7.5. The density of a grape is 2.5. The volume of a grape is 3. As you can see, there is a relationship between these three numbers that all mass, densities, and volumes of objects have.

Why does a pool of water have the same density as a cup of water?

density is mass over volume. if the mass increases then the volume increases proportionately.

If you add water to sand does the volume density and mass change?

Yes because the sand adds more mass to the mass of the water, therefore the density and volume also change

How would you find the density of plasticine?

Roll the plasticine into a sphere and measure the diameter and use the formula for the volume of a sphere V=pi r^2, then weight the sphere to get the mass and use Density = Volume upon Mass. Alternatively, use Archimedes' principle: 1) Weigh a piece of plasticine to get its mass. Very carefully fill a glass with water so full that it cannot contain one more drop of water. Immerse the plasticine in the glass, collecting the water that has run out of the full glass. The volume of the water is equal to the volume of the plasticine. Determine the volume of the water by either weighing it (density of pure water is 1 g per mL) or by accurately measuring the volume. Density = mass (g)/ volume (mL) 2) If you have a balance that can determine mass of an hanging object, first weigh your plasticine to determine its mass. Then attach it to string and take its mass hanging (the string also has mass). Then take its mass while the plasticine is just submersed in water. It will weigh less when submersed in water. The loss of mass when submersed is equal to the mass of water that has the same volume as the plasticine. (density of water is 1 g per mL) Now you can determine the volume of the plasticine since the mass lost in g equals the volume of water in mL. Density is the original mass divided by the volume.
