Currently, I am doing a lab report for school and I have a few

questions. My teacher instructed us to find the density of an object,

such as a piece of lead, and the specific gravity. He said the

formulas were as follows: density=mass/volume (which i know is

correct) specific gravity=mass of object/displaced water of object

Now, I always thought the displaced water of the object, which I

already found, was the same as the volume of the object. Am I

correct? Because then the specific gravity would be equal to the

density, right? If you could e-mail me back ASAP, that would be

great. Thank you. Jennifer Slevin
