Abstract: The measurement, curve fitting, and graphing lab allowed us to make simple measurements using a pan balance (g) and a caliper (mm). We took measurements of six stainless steel ball bearings, and calculated the density of each. Density is defined as p=(m/v). p is density, m is mass, v is volume. Density of a sphere is defined as p=(6m/pi*d^3). P is density, m is mass, pi is approximately 3.14, d is diameter of sphere.

Unformatted text preview: We did the lab by weighing and measuring the diameter of each ball bearing. This data was entered into the FITKit software. Our findings were of the average density of each ball bearing are seen by our graph and data table. My opinion of the lab was that it was a god introduction to simple measurement, curve fitting, and graphing operations....
