Lab 1.4

Volume by Displacement of Water

Experimental Errors:

1. Sand sticks to side of cylinder.

2. Crack in funnel-sand leaks out.

3. Read level of sand wrong (volume of sand and water).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Didn't matter how much sand you began with, the percent of air space without the sand is about 40%.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Equations:

1. is = air dry sand(air)-sand=volume of air

of dry sand

2. (sand+water)-water= sand alone

3. dry sand(air)-sand=volume of air
