• 1.

### What is the ability of something to float?

• A.

Mass

• B.

Density

• C.

Buoyancy

• D.

Luster

C. Buoyancy
Explanation
Buoyancy is the ability of an object to float in a fluid. It is determined by the density of the object compared to the density of the fluid it is placed in. If the object is less dense than the fluid, it will float, while if it is more dense, it will sink. Buoyancy is a result of the upward force exerted by the fluid on the object, known as the buoyant force. This force counteracts the force of gravity, allowing the object to float.

### The amount of space something takes up is called

• A.

Volume

• B.

Buoyancy

• C.

Mass

• D.

Density

A. Volume
Explanation
Volume refers to the amount of space that an object occupies or fills. It is a measure of the three-dimensional size of an object and is typically measured in cubic units such as cubic meters or cubic centimeters. In the context of the given question, volume is the correct answer as it accurately describes the concept of the amount of space something takes up. Buoyancy refers to the upward force exerted on an object submerged in a fluid, mass refers to the amount of matter in an object, and density refers to the mass per unit volume of a substance.

### Whether something is attracted to a magnet is called

• A.

Volume

• B.

Magnetism

• C.

Mass

• D.

Luster

B. Magnetism
Explanation
Magnetism refers to the property of an object to be attracted to a magnet. It is the characteristic that determines whether something can be attracted to a magnet or not. Volume, mass, and luster are not relevant in determining the attraction to a magnet.

### If a material can be changed into a different shape without breaking, it is

• A.

Lustrous

• B.

Dense

• C.

Malleable

• D.

Buoyant

C. Malleable
Explanation
If a material can be changed into a different shape without breaking, it means that the material is malleable. Malleability is the property of a material that allows it to be easily hammered, rolled, or pressed into different shapes without fracturing or breaking. This property is often observed in metals, such as gold or copper, which can be easily molded or shaped into various forms without losing their integrity.

### What is how much mass is in a certain volume of matter:

• A.

Mass

• B.

Volume

• C.

Plasticity

• D.

Density

D. Density
Explanation
Density is the measure of how much mass is contained within a certain volume of matter. It is calculated by dividing the mass of an object by its volume. Density is a fundamental property of matter and can be used to identify and compare different substances. It helps determine whether an object will sink or float in a fluid, and is also used in various scientific and engineering applications such as in the construction of buildings and the design of aircraft.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### What two properties are used to calculate density?

• A.

Mass and Weight

• B.

Mass and Luster

• C.

Volume and Buoyancy

• D.

Mass and Volume

D. Mass and Volume
Explanation
Density is defined as the mass of an object divided by its volume. Mass is a measure of the amount of matter in an object, while volume is the amount of space that object occupies. Therefore, to calculate density, both mass and volume are needed.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### What is how much matter is inside of something?

• A.

Mass

• B.

Volume

• C.

Density

• D.

Magnetism

A. Mass
Explanation
Mass is the measure of the amount of matter present in an object. It represents the quantity of particles (atoms, molecules) that make up the object. Mass is a fundamental property of matter and is independent of its location or the forces acting upon it. It is typically measured in units such as kilograms or grams. In this context, mass is the appropriate answer as it directly relates to the amount of matter inside something.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### What is the amount of shine that something has?

• A.

Sparkle

• B.

Luster

• C.

Color

• D.

Mass

B. Luster
Explanation
Luster refers to the amount of shine that something has. It is a measure of how reflective or glossy an object appears. Objects with high luster reflect light well and have a bright and shiny appearance, while objects with low luster appear dull and lack shine. Therefore, luster is the correct answer to the question as it directly relates to the amount of shine an object possesses.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### _______________ is whether or not an object can be made into wire.

• A.

Plasticity

• B.

Buoyancy

• C.

Ductility

• D.

Bendability

C. Ductility
Explanation
Ductility refers to the ability of an object to be stretched or drawn out into a thin wire without breaking or losing its strength. It is a property commonly observed in metals, such as copper or gold, which can be easily shaped into wires. Plasticity, on the other hand, refers to the ability of a material to be permanently deformed under applied stress, while buoyancy is the upward force exerted on an object submerged in a fluid. Bendability is not a technical term and is not commonly used to describe the ability of an object to be made into wire.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### What is anything that takes up space?

• A.

Energy

• B.

Matter

• C.

Mass

• D.

Volume

B. Matter
Explanation
Matter is the correct answer because it refers to anything that occupies space and has mass. Energy is the ability to do work, but it does not have a physical presence or occupy space. Mass is a measure of the amount of matter in an object, and volume is the amount of space that an object occupies. Therefore, matter is the most appropriate answer to the question.
