Lauren Taranow lmt827 9-14-11 Unique: 51070 Discussion – Experiment 1: Measurement and Density The initial experiment conducted for this class was designed to teach the process of carrying out an experiment using the scientific method, as well as to practice using the glassware and analytical balances to achieve accurate measurements. Before beginning the experiment, I developed a hypothesis stating that Coke is more dense than Diet Coke, because I thought that real sugar in coke would be more dense than artificial sweetener in Diet Coke. However, the data achieved from the experiment showed the two sodas to be very similar in density. When measured with a volumetric pipette, Coca-Cola had an average density of 1 g/ml, while Diet Coke appeared less dense with an average density of 0.96 g/ml. However, the graduated cylinder and burette measurements showed the two drinks to have the same density of 1 g/ml. This data leads me to conclude that Coke and Diet Coke most likely have the same density. This makes sense,
