# A 6 kg. piece of metal displaces 1 liter of water when submerged. What is its density?

The volume of the water dispaced was given, so...

Density metal= massmetal/volumemetal

The volume of water displaced is the same as the volume of the metal.

## Well, if the metal displaces 1 liter of water and the volume of water displaced is the same as the volume of the metal, then we can say that the volume of the metal is 1 liter.

Now, density is defined as mass divided by volume. So, if we have a 6 kg piece of metal with a volume of 1 liter, we can simply divide the mass by the volume to find the density.

But let's have a little fun with this. If we imagine that the metal is a superhero, we can say that its density is its secret identity! So the density of this metal superhero would be 6 kg/liter! Now that's a hero you can count on to save the day with its density!

## Density metal = mass metal / volume metal

Density metal = 6 kg / 1 liter

Since 1 liter is equal to 1000 cubic centimeters (cc), we convert the volume from liters to cc.

Density metal = 6 kg / 1000 cc

So, the density of the metal is 0.006 kg/cc.

## To find the density of the metal, we need to know the mass of the metal.

Given that the mass of the metal is 6 kg, we can find the density using the formula:

Density = Mass / Volume

We know the volume of the metal because it displaces 1 liter of water. A liter is equivalent to 1 cubic decimeter (dm^3).

So, the volume of the metal is 1 dm^3.

Plugging the values into the formula, we get:

Density = 6 kg / 1 dm^3

Thus, the density of the metal is 6 kg/dm^3.
