Unformatted text preview: were all of either a metallic or ceramic nature and had geometries close to ideal geometries. The goal was to determine the identities of the unknown samples from a list of possible materials using both qualitative and quantitative characteristics. The identities of these samples were to be determined using densities calculated from measured masses and volumes, along with magnetic and visual characteristics. Standard deviations were to be calculated for the measurements and an uncertainty analysis was to be conducted for each density calculation. The results could then be used to determine the precision of the measurements and calculations. A comparison between the calculated densities and the published and theoretical densities could then be used to reveal the accuracy of the measurements and calculations....
