Calculating Density Worksheet

In this worksheet, students will work on their skills with calculating density. The worksheet includes a variety of problems

-Calculate the density of a box, given its dimensions and mass

-Calculate the density of an irregular object, given pre/post volume measurements in a graduated cylinder and mass

-Calculate mass, given mass and volume

-Determine if an object will float or sink in a liquid, given the density of the two materials

-Determine how non-mixing liquids will layer out, given their densities.

An answer key is included!

I use this worksheet with my 7th graders, but it could easily be used as is, or adjusted to meet the needs of a 9th grade physical science class, or a physics class.
