OBJECTIVE The purposes of this experiment are master in measuring diameter, length of three dimensional solids by using meter, micrometer and Vernier caliper, determination of volume of irregular shaped solids by observing the water displaced after submerging the solid into water and calculation of density of a substance were calculated with basic measurement that were collected during experiment using the equation density equal to mass per volume. MATERIALS 1. Micrometer 6. Vernier Caliper 2. A ruler 7. Electronic balance 3.A role coper wire 8. Graduated Cylinder 4. Wire cutter 9. A brass, an aluminum, and a copper cylinder 10. Irregular objects (lead and steel) PROCEDURE 1)
