You have a 1.00 M solution of sulfuric acid with a density of 1.08 g/mL. What is the molality of this solution, in
m? Use that the molecular weight of sulfuric acid is 98.09 g/mol.
It says answer is 1.02 m. How do you do this?

This is outside this year's syllabus. But:

1.00 M = 1 mol sulfuric acid in 1 L of solution.
Density of solution = 1.08 g/ml, so mass of solution = 1.08 kg

1 mol of sulfuric acid (solute) has mass 98.09g, so mass of solvent (water) = (1.08 - 0.09809) kg = 0.982 kg

Molality = mols of solute per kg of solvent = 1/0.982 = 1.02 mol/kg (or 1.02 m if you insist )

25. If you bring water to a boil, will it be more or less dense than if it was liquid?
I think it should be less dense because water expands from liquid to gas but the answer is more so i am confused
31. As temperature increase does the density of a liquid increase or decrease?
The answer is increase but shouldnt it be decrease because liquid is expanding.

I think the question was asking volume, but they messed up. What test is this from?

19) Find the mass density of a sphere that has a 10 m diameter.

This question was on one of the tests in the test exchange and I have no idea how to solve it can someone explain why the answer is (4000/3)(pi) according to the key.

This question was on one of the tests in the test exchange and I have no idea how to solve it can someone explain why the answer is (4000/3)(pi) according to the key.

Equation for volume of a sphere: 4/3*Pi*r^3
Diameter of 10m means a radius of 5m.
5^3=125
4/3*125*Pi=volume
(500/3)*Pi=volume. <-- that's the volume
The person who wrote the test messed up writing the question and messed up getting the answer for the volume. The writer said to solve for mass density(which is just normal density), but they solved for volume. Solving for mass density without the mass is impossible. But, they also messed up solving for volume. They used 10m as the radius when it is actually the diameter for the sphere. The only thing you can solve for is the volume of the sphere which is what I listed how to do correctly above. Bad test writing.

know about desity and how warm stuff is less dense and cool is more dense study that and you have 25% of the test.[/color]

Anybody have some good tests? I'm not sure what exactly to expect for nationals(because the rules are quite simple). At both regionals and state, all we had to know was m/v and have some knowledge about the gas laws and archimedes principle.

We had a killer state test. Not going to go into detail because our state supervisor is the national one(I think). Anyone else have an impossibly hard state test as well?

Our test was actually extremely easy. It's hard to imagine a hard test for this event unless there are a great deal of questions in 50 minutes.

Haha. You'll find out at nats what it's like.

omg our states test was so hard. didnt help that our coach made and proctored it... with my mom lmao. it was also first period so my partner and i epically failed it even though we knew most of the stuff. first period jitters ig. with tests i would recommending just doing as many as you can so you can build up stamina and accuracy.

what was your state test like?

### Re: Density Lab B

it was a lot of multiple choice, but our coach made it so that each question had a lot of steps and little tricks. some of the questions were a bit abstract as well. he also put the easy and hard questions scattered around the test so we didn't get to the easy questions lmai
