EXPERIMENT-1
DENSITY OF LIQUIDS
PREPARED BY BURAK COBAN
PURPOSE:
In this experiment we will learn how can we find the density of liquids and liquids of density how change effect of temperature, pressure, mass, volume and concentration. For this reason we will take NaCI solutions with different concentrations and we will measure theirdensities, so we will find out the effects of concentration on density of solutions.
THEORY:
Density is a physical property obtained by dividing the mass of a material or object by its volume (i.e., mass per unit volume).
Here is an old riddle:” What weighs more, a ton of bricks or a ton of feathers?” if you answer that they weigh the same, you demonstrate a clear understanding of the meaning of mass- a measure of quantity of matter. Anyone who answers that the bricks weigh more than the feathers has confused the concepts of mass and density. Matter in a bricks is more concentrated than in a feather – that is, the matter in brick is confined to a smaller volume. Bricks are denser than feathers. Density is the ratio of mass to volume.
Density= Mass (m) / Volume (V)

Lab: Denisty – Solids and Liquids
Part 1: Density
Background Information: The density of an object is how much “stuff”, or molecules, a
substance is made of. Density is how tightly packed the molecules are. To calculate the density
of a substance we need to know the mass (weight) of the substance and the volume (how much
space) of the substance. Mass is determined by weighing an object. Volume of regular shaped
objects is calculated by measuring length (L), width (W), and height (H) in centimeters (cm) and
then multiplying them. V = L x W x H. Density is calculated by dividing mass (in grams) by the
volume (in milliliters or cm
3
). D = M/V.
Part 2: Density of a regular shaped solid
Procedure: Use the materials at your station to complete the data table.
1. Measure the length of the object and record. Length = .
2. Measure the width of the object and record. Width = .
3. Measure the height of the object and record. Height = .
4. Calculate volume: V = L x W x H Volume = .
5. Use the scale to determine the mass of your object. Mass = .
6. Calculate the density of the object: D = M / V Density = .

...Introduction
In the densitylab unknown metals were weighed using beakers filled with water and an electronic scale. First the metal objects were weighed using an electronic scale. Then using water, the beakers were filled half way. Next, the metal objects were poured in. Then the amount of how much the water rose after the metal was put in is checked. Lastly, record the data and clean the objects used and put away.
Design
Research question: If mass and volume are correctly measured can the density of an unknown metal be calculated.
Variables:
Controlled: Water, Electronic Scale, Graduated Cylinder
Dependent: Density; Mass and Volume
Independent: Metal(s)
Method
Apron, Goggles, Electronic Balance, Beaker, Graduated Cylinder, water, unknown metal samples
Labeled Diagram
Uncertainties: Electronic Balance ± 0.01g
Hexagon ± 0.0mL Graduated Cylinder ± 1.0 mL
The independent variable is measured based off the how much the water rises.
The dependent variable is measured when the Initial Volume is subtracted from the final volume, which gives the density of the metal sample.
Controlling the Controlled Variables: The water and electronic scale were controlled. These materials were controlled because the amount of water put into the graduated cylinder could differ, and if the scale is not zeroed again after putting down the paper towel the mass could be...

Purpose:
1. To determine the density of a solid using different laboratory techniques for measuring volume.
2. To use the intensive property of density to identify an unknown substance.
Procedure:
1. Obtain a bag marked with a number containing a cube and a cylinder from the teacher. Record the number on the bag in the data table.
Density of a cube:
Using a balance, record the mass of the cube to the nearest tenth of a gram. Then measure the length, width and height of the cube to the nearest hundredth of a cm. Last, calculate the volume of a cube using the formula L x W x H.
Density of a cylinder by water displacement:
Using a balance, record the mass of the cylinder to the nearest tenth of a gram. Then fill a graduated cylinder of water about half full. Record the volume to the nearest tenth of a mL. After that you carefully drop the cylinder in the graduated cylinder and record the new volume of water to the nearest tenth of a mL. The last thing you do is subtract the volume of the water you had at the beginning from the volume of water you had after adding the cylinder. This number is the volume of your cylinder.

Results and discussion:
The purpose of the experiment was to determine the densities of the unknown liquid and solid as precisely and accurately as possible in order to identify them.
It was carried out first on distilled water in order to rule out systematic errors.
A 10 mL beaker was placed on a top pan balance and “tared”. The beaker was then removed and 10 mL of distilled water was pipetted into it before it was placed on the balance again. Thus, the mass of the water was obtained.
Five experimental trials were performed. The data and calculated results were tabulated (Table 1).
Table 1: Mass and Volume of Water and Density Calculations
Trial # Mass of water (g) Volume of water (mL) Density of water (g/ mL )
1 9.95 10.00 0.995
2 9.98 10.00 0.998
3 9.95 10.00 0.995
4 9.95 10.00 0.995
5 9.93 10.00 0.993
The densities were calculated using the relationship
Density (g/ mL) = (Mass (g))/(Volume (mL))
An example of such a calculation using the trial #1 data:
Density (g/ mL) = (9.95 (g))/( 10.00 (mL)) = 0.995 g/mL
The average of these five determined density values,
(0.995 g/( mL) + 0.998 g/mL + 0.995 g/mL + 0.995 g/mL + 0.993 g/mL)/5 = 0.995 g/mL
was considered to be the density of the distilled water....

Purpose
The purpose of the lab is to find out the density of stoppers, the density of a 100% sucrose solution, and to figure out the density and the percentage of sucrose in the unknown solution. To find out the density, the mass and volume needs to be measured for all three. Then, the mass will be divided by the volume. To find out the percentage of sucrose in the unknown solution, there has to be a comparison between the density of the unknown solution and the densities of different percentages of sucrose solutions.
