Vitale 1 Mike Vitale Professor Golden CHE*111 7 February 2008 Measurement and Density In this lab the purpose is to determine the density of a sample of matter using three different techniques. The sample matter will be a metal slug and plastic “peanuts.” The techniques we will attempt to use are: Dimensionally, volumetrically, and gravimetrically. Each technique should accurately determine the density of the sample inside the plastic container. Water will be a necessary tool because the density of water equals 1.00 gram per cubic centimeter. This means that the mass over the volume has to be equal to make the equation true. I believe that if all of our measurements are made correctly then we can accurately determine the density of each sample. If we are exactly precise the three techniques should yield the same number. Data and Measurements Measured Height of Plastic Cup(in.) 2.75 Measured Height of Plastic Cup(cm.) 7.00 Inside Diameter of Plastic Cup(cm.) 4.65 Mass of Cup and Lid(g)
