Activity 9 Sources of Error Why werent the densities you calculated for the lt. gray cylinders all 2.7 g/cm 3 and the densities for the dark gray cylinders 7.9 g/cm 3 ?

Example- Density Calculation If you measure the mass of an object from a very accurate digital scale, it might read: grams If you measure the volume in a graduated cylinder, your most accurate answer might be 45.2 ml

10
Example – Density Calculation Density = mass / volume Density = g / 45.2 mL You calculator will say this = But we can only use 3 significant digits because that is our least accurate measurement… Correct answer = 1.18 g/mL We will use 1.2 g/mL
