Purpose: To design and test a procedure through which one could determine, accurately, the densities of both an unknown solid and an unknown liquid with available equipment. Observations: Solid : Trial # 1 10.392 Trial # 2 10.389 Trial # 3 10.388 Trial # 1 3.75 Trial # 2 3.75 Trial # 3 3.75 Mass (avg)= (10.392g + 10.389g + 10.388g)/3 = 10.390g Volume (avg)= (3.75ml + 3.75ml + 3.75 ml)/3 = 3.75 ml Density = Mass/Volume Density = 10.390g/3.75ml = 2.77 g/ml The Density of Aluminum is 2.7 Therefore we conclude that our unknown solid is Aluminum. This is consistent with its color and reflectivity. Percent error = (Accepted – Mean)/ Accepted Percent error= (2.7-2.77)/2.7 = .26 We had a fairly high degree of precision in our experiment, especially in measuring volume where the value was found to be 3.75 each time. Our masses were also very similar and averaged no more than .02 from any single trial. Liquid: Density of Water:

Trial # 1 71.124 Trial # 2 71.122 Trial # 3 71.122 Average Mass = (71.124g + 71.122g + 71.122g)/3 = 71.123g

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
