Unformatted text preview: draining into the Erlenmeyer flask which would contribute to error. Also, some require quick reaction times to stop them on the appropriate line. 5) The mass of the contained solution should be used because it is inevitable that some of the solution will be left behind. Conclusion The purpose of this experiment was to determine the density in g/ml of a solution that will just float an egg. The design of the glassware did not play a significant role when calculating the density of the solution. Errors in the experiment could have come from not stopping the solution exactly at the line indicating 25 ml. Error could have also come from not completely drying the Erlenmeyer flask or the volumetric glassware completely between trials. The results of standard deviation and the low range between the densities show the experiment was a success....
