    1. Use ratios to compare the densities. Draw and complete the table below for all comparisons, reducing fractions when possible.

    Table \(\PageIndex{1}\): Density comparison

    Comparison

    Ratio

    \(\dfrac {\text {Density of Sand}}{\text {Density of Air}}\)

     

    \(\dfrac {\text {Density of Sand}}{\text {Density of Water}}\)

     

    \(\dfrac {\text {Density of Water}}{\text {Density of Air}}\)

     
    1. Explain why the same mass of sand and water had different fill heights.
