Finding Density
Finding the Density of Regular and Irregular Objects
Volume of a Cube = Length^{3} | Find the Mass of the Cube | D = Mass(g) / Volume(cm^{3}) | |
Volume of a Block = L * W * H | Find the Mass of the Block | D = Mass(g) / Volume(cm^{3}) | |
Volume of a Cylinder = pr^{2}h | Find the Mass of the Cylinder | D = Mass(g) / Volume(cm^{3}) | |
Measure 50mL in Graduated Cylinder | Mass the 50mL and Cylinder | Add 5 Chips | |
New V - Old V = Chip's V | New Mass - Old Mass = Chip's | 5, 10, 15 & 20 Limestone Chips | |
Knowing the Limestone's Mass and Volume... | Density Can Be Calculated: D = m(g) / v(mL) | ||
Plot Mass and Volume | Limestone = 2.2g / mL | Add 1g/mL & 4g/mL to Graph | |
The Density is the slope of the lines. 4g/mL is steepest, 1g/mL is lowest and 2.2g/mL is between them. |
