Post lab questions:
1. Based on my temperature value and my lab measurements, I calculated that the water density would be 2.16 (g/mL). This calculation of density does not match up with the density in the table provided. The table calculations would give the water with 22ºc a density of 0.99770. My calculation or lab measurements must be wrong because at 4ºc, water has a density at 1. The colder the water, the higher the density. 2. For the aluminum, I got 2.50 g/mL . The discrepancies may be that the literature value measurements measure at a different gram or mL, also because the aluminum may not has been torn off evenly. Although the measure 2.50 g/mL as a density in my calculations was very close to the literature value of density of 2.70 g/mL, there is only few explanations why the calculations would be the same. 3. For the lead, I got 12.36 g/mL. The discrepancies may be that the measurement in my lab were not accurate. Or that when I placed the lead into the...
