Mass = 50g

volume = 20cm³

density = mass/volume = 50/20 = 2.5 g/cm³

density of water = 1 g/cm³

**Since the density of the substance is greater than the density of water, it will sink in water.**

The volume of water displaced = 20 cm³

**mass of water displaced = volume×density = 20×1 = 20g**

volume = 20cm³

density = mass/volume = 50/20 = 2.5 g/cm³

density of water = 1 g/cm³

The volume of water displaced = 20 cm³

Density(d)=mass/volume

d=50/20=2.5gm/cc

DUE TO MORE DENSITY THE SUBSTANCE WILL SINK

mass of water displaced=density×volume

=1×20

=20gm

therefore,mass of water displaced=20gm

d=50/20=2.5gm/cc

DUE TO MORE DENSITY THE SUBSTANCE WILL SINK

mass of water displaced=density×volume

=1×20

=20gm

therefore,mass of water displaced=20gm
