Numerical Problems from Pressure, Density and Floatation

1. Ramesh buys 6 bottles of syrup each containing 1litre. Each empty bottle weighs 400g. The density of syrup is 1.2 g/cm3. What weight does Ramesh have to carry home?

2. The volume of 900g of a substance is 1000 cm3. Will the substance sink or float in water if the density of water is 1g/cm3. What will be the mass of water displaced by the substance?
