A.Water is supposed to boil at 100°C. If the water in this experiment did not boil at 100°C, what could be the reason? Increased pressure could effect the boiling point.

B.An unknown, rectangular substance measures 3.6 cm high, 4.21 cm long, and 1.17 cm wide. If the mass is 21.3g, what is this substance’s density? 20.74 (length x width x height)

C.A sample of gold (Au) has a mass of 26.15 g. Given that the theoretical density is 19.30 g/mL, what is the volume of the gold sample? 1.35

D.How did...
