Lab 3.5

The Density of Solids

Experimental Errors:

1. Mix up the cubes.

2. Measure same side of cube/slab.

3. You use the end of ruler instead of first line.

4. Measure rock's volume before massing --->wet, mass and density increase.

5. Mix up cubes.

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

ALL HAVE DIFFERENT DENSITIES BEAUSE THE ROCK IS FORMED BY MANY SUBSTANCES BEING COMPRESSED TOGETHER. DIFFERENT SUBSTANCES=DIFFERENT DENSITIES.
