Lead ~ 1.15cm x 1.15cm x 1.15cm
First I got the Volume of each Volume Cork = 21.45cm^3 Volume Lead = 1.52cm^3 Then i got the mass of each Mass Cork = 5.04g Mass Lead = 17.252g I don't know what do do now though.
Total mass = 22.292
If it floats, the density is less than 1.00g/mL or 1.00g/cm^3 If it sinks, the density is greater than 1.00g/mL or 1.00g/cm^3
You were correct on combining the masses, now combine the volume to get its combined density.
So would the combined density be .97g/cm^3? this is with the long calculations Because if you do just the densities combined it = 11.585.
Because water density is usually at 1.00g/ml
Yea, I got that also.
ok thanks, so it would float?
Nope, you not add it because the question is asking will the "combination" of both sink? Even if lead sinks, the cork would not.
Yes, it would.
It would float because with the calculations the total density is less that 1g/ml
The lead is not dense enough to make the lead able to sink.
Savannah_Lynn13 ok thanks, so it would float? Yes, it would.

Nice work attempting to solve the problem.
