Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

1. what is the density of medication if the contents of a filled 2.00ml syringe weigh 2.75grams?

2. A pound of butter form a block about 6.5cm x 6.5cm x 12cm. Will the butter floats or sink in water? Prove your answer. Density of water is 1.00 g/ml. Solid floats when its density of the liquid is greater than the solid.

Density is mass / volume, so your answer is 2.75/2.00 in g/ml.
First get the problem into common units - 1lb = 0.454 kg = 454grams. The volume of the butter is 6.5 x 6.5 x 12 = 507cm^3 = 507 ml (1ml = 1cm^3). The density of the butter in g/ml is mass / volume = 454 / 507 = ... you can do this bit, then compare with density of water.
