Calculating Density -How can you find the volume and density of two regular solids, two irregular solids, and two liquids?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Bret Hightower 3rd Period 20, September, 2011 Ms. Licato PDP Chemistry Density Project Question: How can you find the volume and density of two regular solids, two irregular solids, and two liquids? Discussion: Density is a physical characteristic, and is a measure of mass per unit of volume of a material or substance. Density is mass divided by volume. It is a measurement of the amount of matter in a given volume of something. Density is a very important property which can be used to identify a substance. Materials: 1. 2 Regular Solids (Cannot be the same) 2. 2 Irregular Solids (Cannot be the same) 3. 2 Liquids (Cannot be the same) 4. ...read more.

Conclusion

The assignment instructed on how to record notes while in the laboratory environment and how to quickly be able to process unknown required tasks. The assignment taught how to calculate density in three different forms regular solid, irregular solid, and liquid. The main question that the project was required to answer was; how can you find the volume and density of two regular solids, two irregular solids, and two liquids? The answer was not easy to find but eventually was concluded. In order to satisfy the mathematical needs of the project, the formulas for calculating density were required to be obtained. Once this part was done the rest of the project was somewhat easy. The only things left to do were record the data and format anything and everything from the project into an acceptable paper. ...read more.

  2. Research question - How many molecules are there in a liquid drop?

    Taking the example of water, its mass is relatively lower as compared to the number of molecules it contains. This simply suggests that a water molecule will either have lesser atoms, or lighter atoms, or both. On the other hand, the molecule of glycerine is fairly heavy, with an RMM of 92 (whereas the RMM of water is 18)
