# Would an increased volume of a substance

Would an increased volume of a substance, increase it's density? Why or why not?

Mikey, shut up. If your not going to answer the question then dont criticize people who do.

Lets make this short and simple, just like Mikehs mom.

The answer to your question is yes. I will use the ocean as my example. The water at the ocean floor is denser than the water at the surface because water at the ocean floor is being compressed by the water at the surface. This is why water pressure tends to increase as you dive deep down into the ocean. Water can be compressed as well. It will take quite a bit of weight but can still be done.

...hahah

not many people knows exactly how you worded the question. but if you increase the volume of something without changing its mass, its density decreases. If you decrease the volume of something without changing its mass, its density increases.

Why? Density = mass / volume

Now calm maxyfox down, the b*tch gives more critic than answer and doesn't even know how to spell the word "General".

The way the question is worded kinda sounds like you're saying if you had something, then inceased it's volume.

In which case, it's density would decrease.

Oh and auger don't try to be smart if you're not... In science when you're asked a genral question you're expected to give the genral answer.

No if you had a piece of metal and then you added more metal the density would remain the same the only thing that changed was the mass because you would have more of it.

no it would not. as the volume increases, the mass would also do so proportionally. this means the density remains the same.

Hey, stop coming here with your homework problems! :P

Density = mass / volume. Go from there.
