Gather the required materials. Determine the mass of the first solid using a balance. Record the results in your lab notes. If the object is regularly shaped, determine the volume of the first object by using a vernier caliper to measure the three dimensions in centimeters and multiplying them. If the object is irregularly shaped, proceed to step 4. If the object is regularly shaped, move on to step 5. Determine the mass of the object using water displacement. Fill a graduated cylinder with water and record the volume of the water. Place the object inside of the graduated cylinder. Record the new volume. Subtract the volume of the water from the total

Unformatted text preview: volume and record this value as the volume of the object. Convert your measurement to cubic centimeters. Repeat the process for the remaining solid. Determine the mass of an empty graduated cylinder using a balance. Record the mass. Place the given quantity of liquid into the graduated cylinder. Record its volume. Determine the mass of the graduated cylinder and liquid using the balance. Subtract the mass of the cylinder from the total mass. Record this measurement as the mass of the liquid. Divide the masses by the volumes of the 2 solids and the liquid to determine density. Record the 3 values. Clean up your lab station....
