Fatima Elzin SJU Chem 1111L 09/18/2009 Dr. Pedro Bastos Methods for the Determination of Density Part I 1. Which is more precise, the density derived from the calculated volume or the density derived from the measured volume? The density derived from the calculated volume is more precise that the density of the measured volume. Unlike the density of the measured volume, the calculated volume is derived using the vernier calipers which is much more precise then the water displacement method using the graduated cylinder. Unlike the measured volume, we don’t need to take in account the possibility that water may have spilled during the process of the calculated volume. Part II 1. How would you determine the density of a gas? To determine the density of a gas you must use an empty vessel and measure its volume and mass. Then fill the vessel with the gas and measure its volume again. Then you the equation density=mass/volume and then you can determine the density.

    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.
