01.07 Accuracy and Precision: Balance Lab Worksheet
Before You Begin: You may either copy and paste this document into a word processing program of your choice or print this page. Procedure
Access the virtual lab and complete the experiments.
Data
* Below is the table that you will complete for the virtual lab. Either type your results into this table or print the table from the virtual lab (it must be submitted to receive full credit for this assignment.) * To print from the virtual lab.

1. Be sure the data table is viewable.
2. Right-click (PC) or Command-Click (Mac) on the table and select print. Part I: Density of Unknown Liquid|

Calculations
Show all of your work for each of the following calculations and be careful to follow significant figure rules in each calculation. Part I: Density of Unknown Liquid
1. Calculate the mass of the liquid for each trial. (Subtract the mass of the empty graduated cylinder from the mass of the graduated cylinder with liquid.) * Trial 1: 35.46-25.3=10.16

* Trial 2: 36.01-25.39=10.62

* Trial 3: 36.41-26.03=10.38
2. Calculate the density of the unknown liquid for each trial. (Divide the mass of the liquid calculated above by the volume...
