Abstract/ Introduction: The objectives of this lab was to work with metric units, to review the purpose of lab work and general lab methods, and lastly to create graphs and analyze the collected data, with the end goal of understanding some of the basic skills involved in environmental research. Throughout this experiment groups obtained and recorded each student’s anatomical measurements in order to analyze the correlation amongst different anatomical measurements, and to compare and view the differences between Male and Females physically. Materials: -Ruler -Cup or Beaker -Measuring tape -Graduated cylinder -Sand -Funnel Procedure: 1) Write down your height in inches and convert into cm. (2.54 cm =1 in.) Show work. 2) Use a measuring tape to measure the circumference of your own wrist and neck. Record data. 3) Choose one partner, of whom you will take measurements. They will take measurements of you. 4) Take the measurements in columns V, VII, VIII, of your partner and record them. Let them measure you as well. 5) With your partner, calculate the volume of your cupped hand (not a fist). a. Cup your hand and lift out sand from the container. Allow excess sand to flow back into the container. Once you have a stable amount of sand, have your partner place a cup or beaker under your hand so that you may pour ALL the sand into the beaker. b. Pour the sand into a graduated cylinder for a more accurate volume reading, to 0.1 mL. You may use a funnel if desired. (1 mL = 1 cm3). Record data. c. Replace sand into the container, and clean all equipment. 6) Repeat step 5 for you partner
