SCIENCE LAB REPORT Accuracy and Precision in Measurement, Experiment A2 Brady Kaelin, Bradley Manzo 09.26.2019 College Chemistry INTRODUCTION In this experiment, we will look to determine the volume of a liquid and the density of metal in two different ways for each, comparing the results for both experiments. Using the mass and volume of said metal will be one of the methods of calculating its density. We will compare our results with the official accepted values and calculate the percent errors. We will also compare our results with our class’ second group and determine our average values. This will allow us to calculate the average deviation of the data. HYPOTHESIS We are hypothesizing that our class’ two groups will have similar results, because we are using the same volumes of water and roughly the same amount of metal shot. We think that the density of the metal specifically may very since some shots are larger than others.

    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.
