Review p. 19-20
1. You have a piece of metal that has a volume of 15 ml and a
mass of 135 grams. What is the density of this metal? What is
the identity of this metal?
• 135 g / 15 mL = 9.0 g/mL
• Copper!
2. What is the volume of a piece of gold which has a mass of 20
grams? (see table below for densities)
• 20 g / 19.3 g/mL = 1.036g
• 1 g with correct sig figs!
3. What is the mass of a piece of zinc which has a
volume of 150 ml?
• 7.1 g/mL x 150 mL = 1065 g
• 1100 g with correct sig figs!
4. The density of mercury is 13.6 g/mL. If you have a
sample of mercury with a mass of 306.0 grams, how
many mL of mercury do you have?
• 306.0 g / 13.6 g/mL = 22.5 mL
5. You have a statue that has a volume of 238 ml, and
is made of pure silver. What does this statue weigh?
• 10.5 g/mL x 238 mL = 2499 g
• 2500 g with correct sig figs! (you would put a
line over the bolded 0 or write the number in
scientific notation to convey 3 digits in a case
like this 2.50 x 103 g)
6. Archaeologists discover a crown which they believe to be gold. When they
place the crown in a tub of water, the volume increases by 528 ml, and when
they place the crown on a scale they discover it has a mass of 4,500 grams. Is
• 4500 g / 528 mL = 8.5 g/mL
• This is about the density of brass, not gold!
7. What is the density of a substance which has a mass
of 10 grams and a volume of 8 ml?
• 10 g / 8 mL = 1.25 g/mL
• 1 g/mL with correct sig figs!
8. You have a piece of metal which has a mass of
315 grams and a volume of 40 ml. What type of
metal is this?
• 315 g / 40 mL = 7.875 g/mL
• 8 g/mL with correct sig figs!
• Probably iron!
9. You have a piece of metal that occupies a volume of
30.0 mL and has a mass of 81.0 grams. What is its
density? What type of metal is it?What is the volume of
a metal which has a density of 2.7 g/ml and a mass of
15.0 grams?
• 81.0 g / 30.0 mL = 2.70 g/mL
• Aluminum!
• 15.0 g / 2.7 g/mL = 5.555555 mL
• 5.6 mL with correct sig figs
10. What is the mass of a metal which has a density of
19.3 g/ml and a volume of 30 ml?
• 19.3 g/mL x 30 mL = 579 g
• 600 g with correct sig figs!
11. If you have a piece of Zinc with a mass of 50
grams, what is its volume?
• 50 g / 7.1 g/mL = 7.04 mL
• 7 mL with correct sig figs!
12. A piece of copper wire and a 50-pound brick of
copper both have the same density. In your own words
explain how this can be true.
• The mass divided by the volume will be the
same.
• If you have more mass, you will have to have
more volume too.
• But the ratio of mass to volume will be
constant.
13. What is the definition of matter?
• Matter is anything that has mass (weight) and
takes up space (volume)
14. List TWO things that are NOT matter, and
explain WHY they are not matter
Examples include: wind, light, sound,
democracy, fear, etc.
They are not matter because either:
they don’t weigh anything (no mass)
Or they don’t take up any space (they are not
physical objects)
15. List TWO things that ARE matter,
and explain WHY they are matter
• Answers could include anything that has mass
and takes up space.
• Examples: air, a table, Mr. C, etc.
16. Describe the purpose of the shower in the
classroom- under what circumstances should it
be used?
• It is for rinsing off BIG chemical spills or
possibly if you catch fire.
• Neither of these situations is very likely, but if
you feel you need to use the shower, DO IT!
DON’T wait to ask permission first! But use your
best judgement. Small spills can usually be
rinsed off in the sink!
17. Describe when goggles should be worn
in the laboratory.
• Wear goggles whenever there are chemicals out.
• Keep them on until Mr. C says to take them off!
• Even chemicals at another lab station can splash
or spill over toward you!
18. Describe what you should do if you
break a piece of glassware in the lab.
• Get the broom and dustpan to sweep it up.
Then dispose of in the broken glass box.
• Never put glass in the trash can!
19. Describe the function of the following pieces
of equipment:
•
– Erlenmeyer flask - containing liquids (not
measuring volume)
– Funnel – preventing spills when pouring
– Well plate – performing chemical reactions in a
small space
– Ring stand – holding equipment
– Tongs – holding equipment (e.g. when too hot to
touch)
– Graduated cylinder – accurately measuring
volmue
20. Identify the following pieces of
equipment:
• A. Beaker (for containing
liquids, but NOT for measuring
volume!)
• B. Scoopula (for getting solid
chemicals out of a bottle or
container
20. Write the proper measurement
• A. 73.0 mL
