4.  Equal volumes of aluminium and brass have equal masses.

The mass of a certain volume of brass is more than the mass of equal volume of aluminium.

(e) A density bottle has a marking 25 mL on it. It means that:

1.  the mass of density bottle is 25 g
2. the density bottle will store 25 ml of any liquid in it
3. density bottle will store 25 ml of water, but more volume of liquid denser than water.
4.  the density bottle will store 25 ml of water, but more volume of a liquid lighter than water.

(f) The correct statement is

1.  The buoyant force on a body is equal to the volume of the liquid displaced by it ‘
2. The buoyant force on a body is equal to the volume of the body
3. buoyant force on a body is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced by it
4.  The buoyant force on a body is always equal to the weight of the body.

The buoyant force on a body is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced by it

(g) A piece of wood floats on water. The buoyant force on wood will be

1.  zero
2.  more than the weight of the wood piece
3. equal to the weight of the wood piece
4. less than the weight of the wood piece.

The buoyant force on a body is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced by it

(h) The weight of a body is more than the buoyant force experienced by it, due to a liquid. The body will

1. sink
2.  float with its some part outside the liquid
3. It float just below the surface of liquid
4. float with whole of its volume above the surface of liquid.

sink

### B. Short/Long Ans Questions

#### Question 1.

Define the term density of a substance.
Density of a substance is defined as “Mass per Unit volume”. #### Question 2.

Name the S.I. unit of density. How is it related to g Cm-3 ?
S.I. unit of density is kg M-3 In C.GS. system unit of mass is g and unit of volume is Cm3, so CGS unit of density is g Cm-3 (gram per cubic centimetre)
Relationship between S.I. and C.GS. units #### Question 3.

The density of brass is 8.4 g cm-3. What do you mean by this statement ?
This statement meAns one cubic centimetre volume of brass has mass of 8.4 g.

#### Question 4.

Arrange the following substances in order of their increasing density:
Iron, Cork, Brass, Water, Mercury.
Cork, Water, Iron, Brass, Mercury.

#### Question 5.

How does the density of a liquid (or gas) vary with temperature?

Most of the liquids increase in volume with increase in temperature, but water shows anomalous behaviour. Water has maximum volume at 4°C and maximum density at 4°C.
Actually, when volume increases density decreases and when volume decreases the density increases.
But water when cooled from a high temperature, contracts upto 4°C because volume decreases and expands when cooled further below 4°C and hence density of water increases when it is cooled upto 4°C while decreases when cooled further below 4°C. In other words, the density of water is maximum at 4°C equal to 1 g Cm-3 or lOOO kg m-3.

#### Question 6.

A given quantity of a liquid is heated. Which of the following quantity will vary and how ?
(a) mass, (b) volume and (c) density
When a given quantity of liquid is heated
(a) Mass : does not change.
(b) Volume: changes and increases with rise in temperature.
(c) Density : Changes and decreases.
Density = Mass / volume

#### Question 7.

Describe an experiment to determine the density of the material of a coin.
Density = Mass / volume
To find the density of the material of a coin, we need to find its (i) mass—by common beam balance and (ii) Its volume by measuring cylinder.
Measure the mass of coin.
EXPERIMENT – Let the mass of coin shown by beam balance = M (gram) = 50 g (ray)
Measure the vol. of coin.
Initial volume of water = V1 = 40 ml (say)
Final volume of water
When coin is added in the cylinder=V2 = 50 ml (say)
Then vol. of coin = V2 – V1 = 50 – 40 = 10 ml
