The measurements taken for the Lab. CALCULATIONS, ET CETERA . DENSITY OF GAS RELATIVE TO AIR The gas was slightly denser than air, but the results were not very clear. I think that it was slightly denser than air because when the mouth of the test tube was down, and only one test out of two yielded results, whereas when the mouth of the test tube was up, both tests elicited results.
