Block A of an unknown metal has a volume of 125 cm3. Block B of a different metal has a volume of 105 cm3. If block A has a greater mass than block B, what can be said of the relative densities of the two metals? (Assume that both blocks are solid.)

Solution 118P

Here, we have to calculate the relative densities of Block A and Block B.

We know,

Density defines as the mass per unit volume of the substance.

Density = Mass/volume.

Here,

Mass of Block A > mass of Block B

We know,

Density = Mass/volume.

Density(A) =

Density (B) =

Therefore: the relative density of block a and block B is as follows
