Identity of solid unknown (aluminum, bismuth, copper, or tin): ______________________
In the space below, explain how identified your unknown solid from your experimental density.
I had found the density of aluminium, bismuth, copper and tin using the density formula. Then I found which
solid was the closest in density to the unkown solid that I had at my lab station. 13 Part E. Density of water

.998203g/mL Accepted (theoretical) value of water density (g/mL):_________ 0.3% Percent error of the class data from the six data pts (show calculation below):_________
1.) Find error -> (experimentally determined value - accepted value)
.995g/mL-.998203g/mL = -.003g/mL
2.) Find percent error-> |error in measurement/accepted value| X 100
|-.003/.998203| X 100 = .3% Part F. Volume determination of your micropycnometer
On one of the next two pages, explain, in detail, how you determined the volume of
your micropycnometer (show all calculations). You can enter text in the box (option
1) or upload an image of your work (option 2). 14 Option 1: Enter your explanation in the box below:
What I already know:
I know the density of water is .998203g/mL at 20 degrees celcius
I know the mass of my micropycnometer is 1.495g
I know the mass of my micropycnometer and water combined is 2.996g
- So the mass of the water is 1.5010g
How I found the volume of my micropycnometer:
1.) I found the mass of my micropycnometer
2.) I added water so it was flush with the top of my micropycnmeter
3.) I took the mass of the water and micropycnometer and subtracted the mass of just the
micropycnometer to find the mass of the water
4.) I took the density of water from Table 1.1 in the lab manual for what the tempurature of the room was
5.) I found the volume of my micropycnometer by using the density formula, which is Mass/Volume =
Density
1.) I plugged in the information that I already had
1.5010g/V = .998203g/mL
2.) I multiplied both sides by V
V X 1.5010g/V = .998203g/mL X V
3.) Then I divided by the density
1.5020g/.998203 = V
4.) The volume of my micropycnometer is 1.504mL Option 2: Upload an image of your explanation in the box below: ...
