Objectives The objective of this lab was to find the density of aluminum cylinders based upon average length and diameter. Background The density of an object is defined as its mass over its volume. The average density is defined as: Volume Mass Density = Where Mass is the mass of the cylinder and Volume is the volume of the cylinder. In this case volume was determined by the equation: where V is the volume of a cylinder, l is the length of the cylinder and r is its radius. If the cylinders are made of the same alloy, then the density should be the same for each, regardless of the mass and length. Equipment - 3 aluminum rods of varying length and diameter - Caliper (measuring in mm) - Scale (measuring in grams) - Calculator Data Rod number Volume (cm 3 ) Mass (g) Density (g/cm 3 ) 1 10.1788 30.2 2.967 2 5.7005 15.8 2.772 3 2.3569 9.4 3.988 Data Analysis The average density of the cylinders is calculated by the following formula:

### What students are saying

• 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.
