This lab aims to gain knowledge about density and determine the density of several materials experimentally; practice measurements and calculations. The density of three metal cylinders, aluminum, brass, and iron will be measured.
Density is used in numerous calculations in physics, chemistry, and technology. It is of greatest importance for industrial processes. Density is the relative heaviness of an object; it is measured in mass units per units of volume. Density describes how compact or concentrated the substance is. It explains how massive an object is comparing to the volume.
Density is calculated by the following formula:
where M – the weight of the sample, V – Continue reading...
