Volume |

The amount of matter in the volume is an object's ___________ . |
Density |

The measure of the force of gravity pulling an object down to the earth is the object's ______________ . |
Weight |

What is the formula used to find the volume of a solid object? |
V = L x W x H |

What is the formula used to find the density of an object? |
D = Mass divided by Volume |

If a brick has a volume of 48 cubic centimeters and a mass of 144 grams, what is its density? |
D = 144g ? 48 cm3 = 3 g/cm3 |

What tool can we use to measure length, width, and height of an object? |
A ruler |

What tool can we use to measure the amount of matter or mass in an object? |
triple beam balance |

What does the scientific principle of water displacement say? |
No two objects can occupy the same space at the same time. That's why liquids move out of the way when an object is dropped into it, and the level rises. |

True or False: The weight of an object does not remain constant (does not stay the same) if its location is changed from earth to the moon. |
True. The weight changes because the force of gravity on the moon is less than it is on earth |

To find the volume of a car, you would________________ . |
Multiply length x width x height |
