a. Assuming the idol is pure gold, what volume would the bag of sand have to be in order to weigh exactly the same as the idol and not set off the booby-traps?
b. Let us assume that Indiana is successful in removing the idol and returning with it to his laboratory. He decides to determine if it is pure gold. He weighs the idol and measures the volume by a water displacement method. The results are mass = 16.5 kg and volume of water displaced = 954 mL. Is the idol made of pure gold? Explain your answer based on the experimental results
4. An unknown, rectangular substance measures 3.60 cm high, 4.21 cm long, and 1.17 cm wide. If the mass is 21.3 g, what is this substance’s density (in grams per milliliter)?
5.A sample of gold (Au) has a mass of 26.15 g. Given that the theoretical density is 19.30 g/mL, what is the volume of the gold sample?
6. A student was given an unknown metal. The student determined that the mass of the metal was 30.2 g. The student placed the metal in a graduated cylinder filled with 20.0 mL of water. The metal increased the volume of water to 22.9 mL. Calculate the density of the metal and determine the identity of the metal using the table below.
