Mass and Volume Objective: The objective is to determine the mass and volume of several different samples of a material. Make sure all measurements are made to the correct precision and all calculations end up with the correct number of significant figures. Materials: Scale, container, rules, pipette, water, and blocks Procedure: Part 1 Liquid Data: Liquid: _Isopropyl Alcohol_ RUN VOLUME (ml) MASS CONTAINER AND LIQUID (g) MASS LIQUID (g) 0 0 51.431 0 1 10.00 59.022 59.022-51.431 = 7.591 2 20.00 66.617 15.186 3 30.00 74.111 22.680 4 40.00 81.651 30.220 5 50.00 89.122 37.691 Procedure: Part 2 Solid Data: Solid: _Aluminum_ RUN MASS BLOCK(S) (g) LENGTH (cm) WIDTH (cm) HEIGHT (cm) CALCULATED VOLUME (cm 3 ) 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 11.403 2.39 1.89 0.91 2.39x1.89x0.19 = 4.1 2 22.850 4.78 1.89 0.91 8.2 3 34.199 7.17 1.89 0.91 12.3 4 45.698 9.52 1.89 0.91 16.4 5 57.135 11.91 1.89 0.91 20.5 6 68.446 14.21 1.89 0.91 24.4 Graph: Plot the mass Vs. the volume of both parts on the same graph. Use circle data points for liquid and square data points for the blocks. Remember, ml and cm 3 are the same!
Conclusions: 1. What is the physical meaning of the slope of your graph? Do NOT use the word per in your answer.
