Start off by weighing two paracetamol tablets using some accurate scales. Record the mass down (1.15g). This had to be as accurate and precise as we could get it so we had the correct weight to start the experiment. Without this then the results we found at the end would not be accurate. A problem that could be faced with this is that the scales may not have been fully set to zero. Also it takes time for it to fully reach its weight on the reading so you may move them too quick before the right weight has been set.…
