force on the object is the gravitational force. Theory: The density of a material is defined as its mass per unit volume. Volume is the amount of 3-dimensional space occupied by an object. Mass is the property of a body that causes it to have weight in a gravitational field. Experiment one involves all three of these concepts. The experiment requires developing the right skills to use the appropriate measuring instruments. To start off take five measurements to determine the average dimensions of each object. The experiment also teaches how to use significant figures and make sure to note the right amount of significant figures. It also teaches how to calculate mass, volume and density in many different forms. Data:
