Abstract The purpose of this experiment is to refresh the memory by re-introducing concepts of measurement, graphing, and error analysis. Understanding these concepts is very valuable for the future laboratory experiments. My partner and I plan to achieve the goals in the experiment by finding all the necessary data and graphing the results on a graph plotting the objects mass versus its volume. In creating this graph we are able to find the density of each object given by finding the slope of the given data. In this experiment I was able to use a Vernier Caliper and use that to find the dimensions of the givens solids. For the most part this experiment is a way to refresh the memory and allow past material to sink back into the brain. Data Aluminum Block Length [L] (cm) Width [W] (cm) Height [H] (cm) 3.8 3.8 2.55 Solid Cylinder Height [h](cm) Diameter [r 2 ] (cm) Radius [r] (cm) 3.2 1.6 0.8
