Unformatted text preview: 3. The factors that should be considered when determining the volume of the aluminum by displacement is the displacement of liquid by adding the solid to a graduated cylinder that contains a measured liquid. The liquid must be one that will not react with the solid in the time frame of the experiment. The density of the solid must be greater than that of the liquid so that it will sink and displace its entire volume. 4.
