In Part I, use Excel or Logger Pro to plot the mass of the water (in kilograms) along the vertical axis versus the volume of the water (in m3) along the horizontal axis. Add a trendline and display the equation on the graph. Print it and staple it to this worksheet when you turn it in. kg/m3 Slope of trendline = Density of water = You will be using this value in your calculations for Part II. 2. Compute the percent error between your value of the density of water and its accepted value of 1000 kg/3: % error = % Would you say that these two values agree? Explain. 3. In Part II, calculate the density of the solid for each trial using the equation you derived in the Pre-Lab assignment. Compute the average: Average density of solid = Lab08: Simple Harmonic Motion kg/m3 Page 2 of 2 ...
