organic and inorganic material in grams. C. Observation and Results Our calculations from this experiment lead us to believe that the percent of inorganic material was way larger than the organic material.  According to Table  2 in the laboratory manual, the deepest sample of sediment, 10-12cm, had the  most percent of inorganic material and the least amount of organic material. The  same table indicated that the 0-2 cm sample had the least percent of inorganic  material and the greatest percent of organic material. The graph of the percent of  organic material is attached.  D. Claim The farther down in cm the sample went, the percent of organic material  went down and the percent of inorganic material went up. E. Evidence By using the data in Table 2, I found that the 10-12 cm sample of sediment

had a  97.73% of inorganic material and a 2.27% of organic material.  This sample was our deepest sample of the sediment. The 8-10 cm sample of sediment had a  97.28% of inorganic material and a 2.72% of organic material. The 6-8 cm sample of sediment had a 97.68% of inorganic material and a 2.32% of organic material.   The 4-6 cm sample of sediment had a 97.62% of inorganic material and a 2.38%  of organic material.  The 2-4 cm sample of sediment had a 95.56% of inorganic
