Density Lab
The purpose of this lab was to find the mass, the length, the width and the height of 4 different cubes so we could calculate the volume and density of them. We also had to find the density of irregular shapes by dropping them into a graduated cylinder than subtracting the starting water volume by the ending water volume. Density is how much mass is in a certain volume of matter. Volume is the amount of room that an object takes up. Mass is how much matter is in an object.

My hypothesis is that the mass of the object is going to effect the density and the volume of the object. I also think that the length the width and the height will effect the density.
Materials
-4 cubes (made of unknown material)
-1 25mL graduated cylinder
-1 10mL graduated cylinder
-marble
-2 cylinders (made of unknown material)
-rubbing alcohol
-baby oil
-dishwashing liquid
-ruler
-triple beam balance
Part 1 - Density of Regular-Shaped Solids
Step one we used the triple beam balance to find the mass of each cube. Step two we used the ruler to find the length, width, and height of the cube. Step three we multiplied the three measurements to find the volume of all three cubes. Step four we divided the mass by the volume to find the density.

Part 2- Density of Irregular-Shaped Solids
Step one we used the triple beam balance to find the mass of the irregular objects. Step two we found the volume of just the water. Step three we carefully placed one object at a time in the graduated cylinder, found the volume of the water plus the object, which gave us the volume of the object. Step five we divided the mass by the volume to find the density.

Part 3 - Density of Liquids
Step one we found the mass of the graduated cylinder using the triple beam balance. Step two we found the mass of the graduated cylinder and the liquid. Step three we subtracted the mass of only the graduated cylinder from the mass...

...Density, Mass and VolumeDensity is the measure of how tightly the particles of a substance are packed into a given volume.
L=1cm
B=1cm
H=1cm
Aluminium=1cm3
Volume=lbh
Volume= 1cm*1cm*1cm
Volume= 1cm3
Iron 1cm3
1cm3 of iron would be however than 1 cm of aluminium. The density of the iron cube would be greater than the density of the aluminium cube. One explanation from that is that the particles/molecules in the iron cube are more tightly packed than the particles in the aluminium cube
The density of a particular substances is always the same, no matter how large or what shape the piece of substance is. For example, the density of lead is always 11.3 g/cm3
Density= Mass/Volume

...The Calculation of Density By Division of Mass and Volume
Max M. & Emily O.
09/08/13
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 values for these unknown objects like the use of a digital analytical balance to obtain mass, or the measurement of volume by direct observation of a graduated cylinder and by use of a Vernier caliper. Because density is an intrinsic property of matter we are able to calculate and identify elements of matter by measurements of these extrinsic values. Thus proving density to be a fundamental property of matter.
Materials
Three objects of unknown density. 1 metal cylinder, metal shots, unidentified liquid.
digital analytical balance
vernier caliper
100mL graduated cylinder
50 mL graduated cylinder

Measurement of Length, MassVolume and Density
Introduction:
All science is concerned with measurement. "MEASUREMENT" is the determination of the size or magnitude of something "Or" The comparison of unknown quantity with some standard quantity of the same rates is known as measurement. Due to this fact we have standards of measurement. Since the precision of all measuring instruments is limited, the number of digits that can be assumed as known for any measurement is also limited. When making a measurement, read the instrument to its smallest scale division. Accuracy of a result or experimental procedure can refer to the percentage difference between the experimental result and the accepted value. The stated uncertainty in an experimental result should always be greater than this percentage accuracy. In this experiment we will measure length, Mass, Volume and Density using different tools.
Equipment’s:
1) Vernier caliper
2) Triple beam balance
3) Steel cube
4) Cylinder including (Aluminum, brass, copper)
Theory:
The goal of the first part of this experiment is to determine the densities of a number of cylinders, and gain an understanding of how different measurement techniques can affect the reliability of experimental results.
Procedures:
We measured the length, mass, and density of the...

...SOLIDS: Mass, Volume and Density Measurements
A. Overview
Review Sections 1.4 - 1.6 in your textbook (Chemistry: The Central Science, 9th Ed. , Brown, LeMay, Bursten, & Burdge)
This experiment will introduce you to a very important concept in science, especially chemistry: DENSITY. Density is the relationship between the mass of an object and the volume which it occupies. Solid substances generally have the greatest density, normally in the range of 1 - 25 g/cm3. Most liquids have densities between 0.5 - 5 g/mL, while the density of most gases under normal conditions of pressure and temperature is less than 5 g/L. The density of a substance is a valuable tool in determining the identity of a substance.
The laboratory techniques which you will perform are provided as two exercises, each of which you should be able to complete in 30 - 45 minutes. It is not necessary that you do the two exercises in order as they appear in the laboratory manual, but you must complete both exercises during the laboratory period.
NOTE: Each experiment for CHEM 1411 is written for students to work with one, two, or three partners. This experiment requires groups of three or four. Please do not work alone unless otherwise instructed.
You will record your measurements and results in the Data Tables as Trial 1. Your...
