1) The diagram below shows a glass jar containing a clear liquid and a floating rock. Which conclusion about the relative density of the rock and the liquid is true?

  1. The rock is less dense than the liquid.
  2. The rock is more dense than the liquid.
  3. The rock and the liquid have the same density.

2) A sample of a mineral is heated until it melts. Compared to the density of the original sample, the density of the melted sample most likely will be

  1. less
  2. greater
  3. the same

3)What is the density of a mineral sample with a volume of 10.00 cm3 and a mass of 25.0g?

  1. 2.5 g/cm3
  2. 25.0 g/cm3
  3. 250.0 g/cm3
  4. .25 g/cm3

Base your answers to questions 4, 5, and 6 on this object.


Mass = 80.0 grams

Volume = 25 g

4) What is the density of the object

  1. 1.3 g/cm3
  2. 5.5 g/cm3
  3. 3.2 g/cm3
  4. 0.3 g/cm3

5)The mass of the object could best be determined by

  1. comparing it with a known standard mass.
  2. placing it in a beaker of water.
  3. calculating its circunference.
  4. counting the number of flat surfaces it contains.

6) If the object is cut in half, the density of each piece will be

  1. less than that of the original object
  2. greater than that of the original object
  3. the same as that of the original object

Base your answers to questions 7, 8, and 9 on this object.

7) The mass of this piece of material is approximately

  1. .23 g
  2. 4.4 g
  3. 9.3 g
  4. 32.4 g

8) Which graph best represents the relationship between the mass and volume of various sized pieces of this material?

9) If this material is heated and expands, the density of the material will

  1. decrease
  2. increase
  3. remain the same

10) As Shown below, an empty 1,000 milliliter cylinder has a mass of 250.0 grams. When filled with a liquid, the container and the liquid have a combined mass of 1,300 grams.




What is the density of the liquid?

1) 1.00 g/cm3

2) 1.05 g/cm3

3) 1.30 g/cm3

4) 0.95 g/cm3

11) Four different kinds of particles (A, B, C, and D) with the same shape and diameter were mixed and poured into a column of water. The mass, volume, and density of the particles are shown below.

Particle Mass (g) Volume (cm3) Density(g/cm3)



Which diagram best shows how the particle beds would be arranged in the column of water after settling?


12) A sample of oxygen gas in a closed system has a volume of 200 milliliters at 600K. If the pressure is held constant and the temperature is lowered to 300K, the new volume of the gas will be

  1. 100 mL
  2. 200 mL
  3. 300 mL
  4. 400 mL
