Densities of Liquids and Solids Results and Discussion: The purpose of this lab was to determine the densities of an unknown solid and liquid as accurately and precisely as possible. To do this, the mass and volume of the solid and liquid were measured. Then, their densities were calculated using the formula, Density = Mass / Volume. The mass of the solid was measured using an electronic balance; its volume was determined by placing the solid into a graduated cylinder filled with 10 mL of water and seeing how much the

water rose. The mass of the liquid was made by measuring out 10 mL of the liquid and then weighing its mass using the electronic balance. Initially, two trials were performed on the unknown solid. The data and calculated results were tabulated (Table 1). Table 1: Mass, Volume, and Density of Unknown Solid Trial Mass (g) Volume (mL) Density (g/mL) 1 6.976 1.3 5.4 2 6.968 1.2 5.8 The density was calculated by the following: D= M/V= (6.976g)/(1.3mL)=5.4g/mL After the first two trials, it was discovered that the density of the unknown solid did not
