10Do the math 1 . Original reading of volume Final volume of water This will equal the volume of the object22.5 mL mL = 5.1 mL Therefore, the volume of the object by displacement is 5.1 mL
11A penny is a flat cylinder – could calculate the volume by direct measurement.
12Value of Error in Minting Pennies 4/7/2017 4:12 AMValue of Error in Minting PenniesHow close the individual volumes are to each other Calculate as follows% error = average volume - actual volume actual volume% error = error in minting the penniesThe smaller the %error, the better the precision in making of the pennies.12
13Example: % error in minting pennies = average volume - actual volume % error in minting pennies = 1.2g g g= X 100%= 14 %So there is a 14% error in minting of these particular pennies13
14When are Equal Volumes Not Equal? 100mL 250mL 250 mL
