# Is the density of a substance relative to water called liquid gravity?

The term is correctly specific gravity (also relative density ) which compares the density (typically in g/cm 3 ) to that of water (which is practically 1 g/cm 3 ).

# How do water's relative densities in solid and liquid forms differ from those of most other substances?

Most substances become more dense when they solidify, because thesame amount of particles are taking up a smaller amount of space,but ice is actually less dense than water, an

# How is finding the density of a solid different from finding the density of a liquid?

liquid has no definite shape but an irregular solid has a definiteshape. ------------------------------------------------------------ Just by using Archimedes Principle

you cant.

# What happens to density when a substance changes from a solid to a liquid?

the density of the substance decreases

# What is the only substance that has a greater density as a liquid than a solid?

Water has higher density than ice. That is why ice floats on water.

# How does solid and liquid differ from each other?

solid- atoms more tightly packed specific shape and volume liquid- atoms slightly less tightly packed, no specific shape, specific volume

# What happens if density of a solid substance is more than liquid?

The solid cannot float in this liquid.

# How do water's relative densities an a solid a liquid deffer from that most other substances?

Solid water, ice, is less dense than liquid water and floats on top. The solid state of other substances is more dense than the liquid state and will sink in the liquid.

# How do waters relatives densities as a solid and a liquid differ from that of most other substances?

The solid state of water is less dense than its liquid state, which is why ice floats on water. The solid state of nearly all other substances is more dense than the liquid st

# Why is liquids density different from solid and gases density?

Because the particles are closer together in a solid then more fit in a set space, making it denser, it's the opposite for gases

# How do water's relative densities as a solid and a liquid from that of most other substances?

In most substances, as you solidify the product by cooling, its density rises (that is - it gets heavier). Water has a density inversion point, so ice is actually lighter than

# Compare the densities of the solid liquid and gaseous states of a substance?

If you compare the densities of a solid, liquid, and gaseous statesof a substance you will find that the solid is the most dense, theliquid is a medium density, and the gas is

# Why do gases liquids and solids have different densities?

The space between the molecules is different in each case.

# How does water's relative densities as a solid and a liquid differ from that of most other substances?

Water has a lower density as a solid than it does as a liquid. Inthe vast majority of substances are denser as solids than asliquids.
