Why we did this: The purpose of this lab was to use our knowledge of mass and volume, and our knowledge and experience with uncertainties, significant figures, and accurate measurements to get measurements that are very accurate, and to check if our measurements and calculations were done correctly we use the density formula to calculate the density and check what material the cube is made of. Conclusion: The caliper measurements of densities and volumes were much more accurate to the actual densities of the blocks, and from those densities we found that the blocks are composed of, in order, white oak wood, ash wood, polypropylene, iron, brass, copper, wollastonite, polycarbonate, douglas fir wood, acetal (polyoxymethylene).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
