Title: Laboratory Techniques and Measurements
Purpose: In this experiment I will determine the mass, density, volume, lengths and temperatures of different objects and liquids to help me better understand the importance of Chemistry and how Chemistry plays a big role in our everyday lives. Procedure: In the experiment, I use devices such as a ruler, beakers, flasks, a scale and cylinders to measure the values of each object and liquid.

Water boils at 100*C at sea level. If the water in this experiment did not boil at 100*C, what could be reason? The boiling point varies due to atmospheric pressure. We are above sea level so the boiling point is higher. While heating two different samples of water at sea level, one boils at 102*C, and one boils at 99.2*C. Calculate the percent error for each sample from the theoretical 100.0*C....
