Unformatted text preview: the least amount of error, simply because the measurement is physically performed, there is a cause for uncertainty. The individual may read the meniscus to be 13.4 mL where there is a chance the actual reading is 13.3mL or 13.5mL, with an uncertainty of 0.1. In this case, the lab results supports the theory of uncertainty in measurements with the uncertainty in calculated density resulting in 0.089 g/cm 3 as opposed to the 0.54 g/cm 3 error in measured density. Thus, it is adequate to conclude that the density derived from calculated volume is more precise than the density derived from measured volume....
