The metal with the lower density occupies more volume, so it would displace more water.

Density of silver = 10.49 g/cm-3 , density of gold = 19.3 g/cm-3,

Silver's displacement is greater.

How many grams of water should a solid 1300 gram cube of iridium displace?

~58 If iridium has a density of 22.42 g/cm3, 1300 grams of iridium would displace 1300/22.42 grams of water (as water has a density of 1 g/cm3). The shape of the iridium is irrelevant.

What is the definition of water displacement?

If you were to submerge a cube that is 1MX1MX1M in water you would "displace" or move one cubic meter of water. The cube would be where water was, so it is said that the water was displaced. One measure of a ship is how much water is displaced when the ship floats. Something that is floating will displace its own weight in water.Water displacement moes the water so you can tell the volume of an object. Also... Displacement is a measure of mass as in a ship's displacement. A ship will displace the amount of water equal to it's mass or weight. The amount of water displaced, by volume, can vary depending on whether the ship is in salt water or fresh water. A ship will displace less water in the ocean than it will, let's say in a river. A gallon (US) of sea water weighs about 8.55lbs (3.88kg), while a gallon (US) weighs about 8.35lbs (3.79kg). If the same ship were in a river or lake of fresh water it would sit lower in the fresh water then it would in the ocean. Ocean's water, being heaver, is then more buoyant.

What would the final volume of water be in a graduated cylinder if 0.740 cm3 of silver pellets were added to 11.2 mL of water?

The volume occupied by water will not change, it will remain 11.2cm3 (1ml =1cm3). However, the final volume level will be 11.94cm3, since the silver pellets will displace the same volume of water that it occupies.
