Best Answer

Most containers are not filled to capacity. Head room is left to allow for expansion as the temperature varies. For instance, a 12 ounce cola can holds more than 12 ounces when filled to capacity. Some will recall the bulging tops on cola cans that have been frozen. So a milk container, while it contains a litre of milk and is called one litre has a capacity greater than one litre when completely filled.

How would you separate a mixture of lead and aluminum pellets?

Just fill a container with water. The aluminum is light, and less dense than the water, so it will float to the top of the container. The lead is heavy, and more dense than the water, so it will sink to the bottom of the container. You can then separate the two easily.

Why does an stone go under the water?

Because the stone weighs more than the same volume of water. If you fill a container to the brim with water, then put a stone into the water and catch the water that overflows from the container, that overflowed water will weigh less than the stone does. If you did the same thing with a cork, and used a pin to push the cork under the surface of the water, the overflowed water would weigh more than the cork.
