IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY!

But, you were so focused on finishing your chemistry lab that you lost track of time and ended up getting LOCKED IN SCHOOL after everyone else has left!And now your only hope to make it to your own birthday party is to get the 4 digit security system code to unlock the doors.Answer the questions hidden all over the school to get the code!

Code Locations

The code is hidden throughout the school. Write down each digit of the code.

Once you have all 4 numbers of the security code, enter them into the security system to unlock the doors!

The number of protons in an atom

Question 1: What is mass?

A measure of the amount of matterin an object or substance

The pull of gravity on an object

The amount of space an object or substance takes up

To get the first digit of the code, you must get all 6 questions in the science lab correct.

If you do not get all 6 questions correct, you get to try again.

Mass is a measurement that tells us how much matter is in an object or substance. Some units of mass include grams (g), kilograms (kg), and metric tons (t). Example: The pencil has a mass of 6 grams. Volume refers to how much space an object or substance takes up. Some units of volume include milliliters (ml), liters (L), and cubic centimeters (cm³). Example: The eraser has a volume of 4 cubic centimeters. Note: 1 milliliter (ml) is the same volume as 1 cubic centimeter (cm3). Density refers to the amount of matter in a given amount of space. To find the density of a substance, divide its mass by its volume. Some units of density include grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3), grams per milliliter (g/ml), kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m3), and kilograms per liter (kg/L). Example: The rock is much more dense than the marshmallow. The density of the rock is 2.8 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3). The density of the marshmallow is 0.5 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3).

Do you think grapes will sink or float when put into water?

Float

Sink

Grapes sink in water!

So, does this mean that grapes are MORE or LESS dense than water?

Grapes areMORE dense than water.

Grapes are LESS dense than water.

Grapes are THE SAME density as water.

Try again! Remember: Objects or substances sink in substances they are MORE dense than. Objects or substances float in substances they are LESS dense than.

Try again! Remember: Objects or substances sink in substances they are MORE dense than. Objects or substances float in substances they are LESS dense than.

Use water displacement to determine the volume of ONE grape.

What is the volume of the grape in the graduated cylinder?

60 ml

66 ml

Remember:The amount of water displaced (the amount the water level rises) is equal to the volume of the grape!

Remember:The amount of water displaced (the amount the water level rises) is equal to the volume of the grape!

Try again! Volume of grape = (volume of water + grape) - (volume of water without grape)

Try again! Volume of grape = (volume of water + grape) - (volume of water without grape)

Try again! Volume of grape = (volume of water + grape) - (volume of water without grape)

That's right!

What is the density of the grape?

Remember:

Click here if you'd like a clue.

The density of the grape can be found by dividing the mass of the grape by its volume. The mass of the grape is provided on the page and you have already concluded that the volume of the grape is 6 ml. Divide the mass by 6 ml and you will have the value for the density in the units of grams/milliliter! This is the number you will enter. You can do this!

Get all 5 questions correct to get the third digit of the code.

Help

To find the density of each ball, divide its mass by its volume. To determine whether an object will sink or float in water, compare its density to the density of water (1.00 grams/cubic cm). If an object has a density greater than 1.00 grams/cubic cm, it will sink in water. If it has a density that is less than 1.00 grams/cubic cm, it will float. Something to ponder....what will an object that has the SAME density as water do???
