Inside diameter of 50-mL graduated cylinder 8.14 cm Height of 50-mL graduated cylinder 2.75 cm Water temperature 20.5 °C Initial volume of water in 50-mL graduated cylinder 10.0 mL Mass of water in the 50-mL graduated cylinder 10.0 g Volume of water and aluminum shot in 50- mL graduated cylinder 17.7 mL Mass of aluminum shot (given on outside of packet) 19.93 g B. Follow-Up Questions (Show all calculations) Part I (Each question is worth 10 points.) 1. Convert the length and height measurements for the packet that contains the aluminum shot from units of cm to units of mm using the unit-factor method. a. To convert a length of 5.05 cm to mm, I would use the 10 mm/1 cm rule and multiply it by 5.05 cm (to clear the cm) and the result would be 50.50 mm or 50.mm (2 sig figs) b. To convert the height of 6.61 cm, I would use the same rule, 6.61 (10) = 66.10 mm or 66.mm (2 sig figs) 2. Convert the temperature measurements for the faucet water and the ice water from o C to o F, using the following equation: o F = 1.8( o C) + 32 . a. Faucet water was 27.9 °C -- 1.8(27.9) = 50.2, 50.2 + 32 = 82.2 °F or 82.°F (2 sig figs) b. Ice water was 13.8 °C -- 1.8(13.8) = 24.8, 24.8+32 = 56.8 °F or 57.°F (2 sig figs)

3. Convert the volumes of the water in the 10-mL and 50-mL graduated cylinders from mL to L, using the unit-factor method. a. In the 10-mL cylinder I had 9.38 mL, to convert to L I would use the 1000 mL/1 L factor. 9.38 x 1/1000 (to clear the mL) would result in .009 L. b. In the 50-mL I had 11.9 mL, using the same factor, 11.9 x 1/1000 equals .012 L 4. Looking at your measurements for the volumes of water in the 10-mL and 50-mL graduated cylinders, are your values identical? Discuss at least two reasons why the measurements were not identical.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    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.
