A. Density of liquids
Measure the mass of a graduated cylinder to the nearest 0.01g. Add water to the cylinder, calculate the new mass of the cylinder and water. Record the volume of water to the nearest 0.1 mL. Repeat steps 1-2 for additional liquids.

B. Density of solids using water displacement
1. Obtain a solid object and measure its mass to the nearest 0.01 g. 2. Fill a graduated cylinder about half full and read the volume to the nearest 0.1 mL. 3. Carefully place the solid in the water and record the new volume of water to the nearest 0.1 mL. 4. Repeat steps 1-3 for additional solids.

C. Density of solids using calipers
1. Obtain a solid object and measure its mass to the nearest .01 g. 2. Use calipers to measure the necessary dimensions to calculate volume. Record the measurements to the nearest 0.01 cm. 3. Repeat steps 1-2 for additional solids.

Calculations:
1. Volume of a solid using water displacement
Final volume of water - Initial volume of water = Volume of a solid a. Cube- 59mL – 40mL = 18mL
b. Cylinder- 14.5mL – 10mL = 4.5mL
c. Sphere- 6.4mL – 6mL = 0.4mL
2. Volume of solids using vernier calipers.
a. Cube- l * w * h
2.5 * 2.5 * 2.5 = 15.63

b. Cylinder- 3.14 * r² * h
3.14 * .95 * 3.57 = 10.12

...Lab Report
Question- Why do few objects float in water where as others sink?
Hypothesis- I think the objects that have a greater density than water will sink. So whichever object has a density more than 1g/cm³ will sink in water. This is known as relative density where the density of the substance is compared to the density of water. Hence, the object that has a greater mass: volume ratio than water will sink....

...Experiment: determination of densities
Introduction
The density of a sample of matter represents the mass contained within a unit volume of space in the sample. For most samples, a unit volume means 1.0 ml. The units of density, therefore, are quoted in terms of grams per milliliter (g/ml) or grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3) for most solid and liquid samples of matter.
Density is often used as a point of...

Introduction/ Purpose/ Objectives
The purpose of this lab was to experimentally determine the density of three unknown objects, and to identify the objects based on their densities. A list of accepted chemical density values was given to identify these unknown compounds. A variety of simple lab techniques were used to obtain quantitative...

Density of Sprite and Diet Sprite
Abstract:
The density of regular Sprite was found to be 1.037 +/- g/mL. compared to Diet Sprite which was 0.9965 +/- g/mL. Among the three volumetric glassware Pipette was most precise (ó=0.0016 g/mL). Burette was the second best (ó=0.0023 g/mL) and graduated cylinder was the least precise (ó= 0.007 g/mL). Density was found to be intensive property. The slope...

Experiment #1: Measurements
INTRODUCTION
Density is a physical property of matter, as each element and compound has a unique density associated with it. The unit of Density is g/cm3 or g/mL. It is used to measure thr relative “heaviness” of objects with a constant volume. As defined, the formula for Density is Mass over Volume (ρ=m/v) and it can be rearranged...

Experiment 1: Determination of Density
Introduction
The purpose of this experiment was to be able to measure the density of water and an unknown substance with a buret and an analytical balance. The density can be calculated by dividing the mass per volume. It was expressed in grams per cubic centimeters, or in this case, grams per milliliters....

...Density: Using Experimental Techniques to Solve an Inquiry based problem
ABSTRACT
The topic of this experiment is Density. The objective is to find two ways in which the density of a given object can be determined, and to find out which of the two ways is more accurate and hence better to use in such a case. The two methods used in this experiment are finding the dimensions of the object and water displacement. These are two ways of finding the...
