Results and Discussion: The density of water (H 2 O) was calculated by using the formula D = M/V to ensure accuracy and precision of the procedure. Three experimental trials were performed. The mass of water was obtained by first determining the mass of an empty 100mL beaker, then determining the mass of it filled with 20mL of water (as measured in the beaker). The difference of the two would be accepted as the mass of 20mL of water. The data was calculated and tabulated in Table 1. Table 1: Density of Water (H 2 O) Trial Mass (g) Volume (mL) Density (g/mL) 1 76.660-55.001= 21.659 20 1.1 2 77.275-54.918= 22.357 20 1.1 3 69.286-50.770= 18.516 20 0.93 The density of H 2 O was calculated using the density formula. An example of such a calculation follows: D = M / V D = 21.659g / 20mL D= 1.08295 ~ 1.1 g/mL The average of these three determined values, 1.1 g/mL + 1.1 g/mL + 0.93 g/mL = 1.04 g/mL ~ 1.0 g/mL 3 was considered to be the standardized density of the water. Given the relatively small average deviation, |1.0 g/mL – 1.1 g/mL| + |1.0 g/mL – 1.1 g/mL| +| 1.0 g/mL – 0.93g/mL| = 0.09 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
