DENSITY LAB

Mass the amount of material in an object can be determined by using a triple beam balance.

Triple Beam Balance

Mass vs. Weight Weight = mass x gravity Scale Measures weight Balance measures mass

Volume the amount of space that an object takes

Volume = l x w x h Make all measurements to the nearest tenth of a centimeter.

Nearest 1/10 cm

Water Displacement

Archimedes

Density Density= mass (g) / volume(mL) Units g/mL Or g/cm 3 DV M

x x = length width height volume mass density object (cm) (cm) (cm) (cm3)or(ml) (g) (g/cm3 or g/ml) cube 1 cube 2 Use water displacement to cube 2 find the volume of cube 2 (not wood)and the rock. Calculate the density of both with this volume rock
