II Equipment/Reagents: A sheet of regular typing paper and ruled provided in lab kit.

III Procedure: Measure the length and width of the sheet of typing paper and express this measurement in millimeters rounded to the nearest tenth of a millimeter. Calculate the area of the sheet using the formula:

Area= (length)(width) Round your answers to the correct number of significant digits and write the answers in the correct units. Convert your answer to cm2 and in2.

IV Data or Observations:

Length | Width | Area | 279 mm | 215 mm | 6.00x104 mm2 | 27.9 cm | 21.5 cm | 6.00x102 cm2 | 11.0 in | 8.46 in | 93.1 in2 |

V Calculations:

4/3 π (10.3 mm)3=4580 mm3

4/3 π (1.03 cm)3=4.58 cm3

4/3 π (0.404 in)3=0.276 in3

VI Results/Summary: The volume of the sphere was 4580 mm^3, 4.58 cm^3, and 0.276 in^3.

Experiment 3D

I Purpose: To determine the densities of a rectangular solid and solid sphere and express the answers in grams/cm3. To identify each solid.

II Equipment/Reagents: Rectangular solid, solid sphere, and balance.

III Procedure: Calculate the density of each solid (in grams/cm3) using the formula:

Density = Mass/Volume Record your answers and identity each solid by using the table below. Choose the density in the table closes to your calculated density. Round your answers to the correct number of significant digits and write the answers in the correct units. Substance | Density (grams/cm3) | Plastic | 0.92 | Wood | 0.76 | Glass | 2.6 | Steel | 7.8 | Nickel | 8.9 | Chromium | 7.2 |

IV Data or Observations:

V Calculations:

(30.33 g)/(40.3 cm3)= 0.753 g/cm3

(35.90 g)/(4.58 cm3)= 7.84 g/cm3

VI Results/Summary: The density of the rectangular solid is 0.753 g/cm^3 and for the solid sphere 7.84 g/cm^3.

Experiment 3G

I Purpose: To determine the density (grams/mL) of small metal objects by water displacement.

II Equipment/Reagents: Balance, 25 mL graduated cylinder, water, plastic pipet and small metal objects.

III Procedure: Tare the balance so it reads zero grams. add approximately five milliliters of water to the 25 mL graduated cylinder, and record the volume to the nearest tenth of a milliliter. Place on the balance and press the tare button to zero the balance. Remove the graduated cylinder from the balance and tilt it at an angle of about 45 degrees. Carefully add to it the small metal objects, making sure that no water is splashed out of the graduated cylinder. Place the graduated cylinder, water. and small metal objects on the balance and determine the mass of the small metal objects to the nearest hundredth of a gram. Record this value and the water level in the graduated cylinder to the nearest tenth of a millimeter. To find the volume of the small metal objects subtract the initial volume of the water from the final volume of water. Record this value. Find the density of the small metal objects using the formula:

Density = Mass/Volume Round your answers to the correct number of significant digits and write the answers in the correct units.
