Physics Density Investigation

Density

* Aim: we will measure the density of two objects, a microscopic slide and a glass stopper, to decide whether they are both from the same material or no.

* Hypothesis: materials have different densities, and the two objects we have are to be tested to know if they have similar densities so to know if they are made of the same material, and my prediction that they are both made from the same material, which is said to be glass.

* Variables: volume and mass.

* Materials: 1.Glass stopper.

2.Microscopic slide.

3.Displacment vessel.

4.Digital balance.

5.Verniar caliper.

6.Micrometer.

7.Measuring cylinder.

* Method: -Microscopic slide:

1.Take readings of the length and the width of the microscopic slide using the verniar caliper and write it down.

2.Take reading of the thickness of the microscopic slide using the micrometer and write it down.

3.Find out the mass of the microscopic slide using the digital balance and write it down.

-Glass stopper:

1.Place the glass stopper in the displacement vessel and put
