(3 points) The calculated value of the density of water is 832kg/m^3. The standard value for the density of water is 1000 kg/m 3 . (3 points) The percent difference between your calculated value of the density of water and the standard value is 16.8%. Questions 1. (3 points) Does the data support Archimedes principle? Yes 2. (3 points) What are some of the sources of error in the experiment? Some of the sources of error could be skewed and misread data as well as sensor error. Phys310 Lab Page 3 Experiment 10...
