In this week’s lab we had to determine the density of a quarter, penny, and dime. My question was “How does is each coin?” Density is the amount of mass in an object. To find the density of each coin in this lab, we used a triple beam balance to find each coin’s mass and a graduated cylinder to find their volumes. With all this information, I can now form a hypothesis.
My first hypothesis is if I put a quarter in a graduated cylinder and get the volume and weigh it, then it will have the greatest density. If I put a dime in a graduated cylinder and get the volume and weigh it, then it’s density will be between the quarter and the penny. And finally, if I put a penny in a graduated cylinder and get the volume and weigh it, then it will have the lowest density out of the three coins.
In almost every experiment, there’s an independent and dependent variable, a constant, and a control group. The independent variable in this lab was the coins. The dependent variable was the density. The constant was the amount of water. In this lab, there was no control group .*…show more content…*

To find the density of the three coins, I followed a short and simple procedure. First, I used the triple beam balance to find the mass of each coin to the nearest tenth of a gram. Next, I filled the graduated cylinder with 50 mL of water. Then I put the quarter in the graduated cylinder. In my data table, I recorded the volume of the quarter and the the water in the graduated cylinder. Next, I removed the water and the quarter from the graduated cylinder and poured 50 mL of water again. I repeated this until I got results for all three coins. To find the volume of each coin, the formula I used was volume of water and coin - initial volume of water ( 50 mL ). To find the density, I divided the mass and the volume of each

## Brainstorm Clock Experiment

883 Words | 4 PagesThis helped us realize that a drippy faucet was an accurate clock. Lastly, we created sundials by tracing a protractor and then marking off intervals of 15 degrees, which were the time intervals starting with 6AM on the left side and ending with 6PM on the right. Then we stuck the screw through the paper in the middle of the bottom straight line. Thursday in lab, we first found the spring constant of our spring hooked onto our stand by timing the period it took for a 50g weight to oscillate back and forth. We timed the oscillation ten time and then found the average which was .77 seconds.

895 Words | 4 PagesAfter measuring the amount of water needed (50 mL), put the beaker of water back into the freezer to maintain its temperature. Pour 50 mL of cold water into one detached chamber. Place the chamber with water and the chamber without water on a table side by side. Place the connected choice chambers with 5 sowbugs in the right and left* chambers on top of the separate chambers (one with 10 degree celsius water and one without water), adjust the pairs of chambers so the attached chambers are directly on top of the separated chambers. Every 30 seconds count and write the amount sowbugs in each chamber (from 30 seconds to five minutes).

## Rate Of Reaction Lab

1951 Words | 8 PagesIn this experiment I set up a lab that examined how 5 different concentrations of HCL (each concentration differing by 5ml of HCL) reacted with CaCO3 and performed three trials for each concentration of HCL, I then found then average of the results and used the averages to form an accurate graph comparing the rate of reaction for each concentration of HCL when mixed with CaCO3 chips. In this experiment I placed 5g of CaCO3 chips in a conical flask and then mixed the different concentrations of HCL with the calcium carbonate. As soon as all of the acid was poured in I attached a delivery tube to the conical flask and watched the CO2 form in upside down graduated cylinder (see diagram). The reaction observed

## Goldfish Metabolism Experiment

1468 Words | 6 PagesBefore getting the goldfish subjects, two beakers were filled with 200 ml fish water and weighed. Four goldfish were then collected gently from the fish tank and each two of them were transferred into one beaker. Each beaker along with fish and water was weighed again to determine the weight of each pair of goldfish. For the control group of each trial, the oxygen chamber was firstly filled with 200 ml fish water; after two goldfish along with 200 ml water were transferred into it, it was sealed in order to prevent oxygen exchange with the ambient environment. The built-in probe in the chamber measured the dissolved oxygen concentration in the chamber’s water (mg/L), which could reflect the oxygen consumption rate of goldfish.

416 Words | 2 PagesOnce we read, we then obtained the materials needed, which were an electrical balance, a nickel, golf ball, pencil, rock, an empty 100 ml beaker and a 100-ml beaker containing 50 ml of water. After obtaining our materials, we turned on the balance and set it to weigh in grams. Then, we "zeroed" the balance and began placing each object on the balance. While placing each object on the balance, our lab partner, Sandra recorded the weights. Eventually, we finishing weighing each object, recording their weights and then we began converting the recorded measurements to the English system and calculating the density.

Each sample was visually observed and the colour of each was recorded. Next 20 drops of Benedict’s solution were added to each test tube and the test tubes were lowered into a hot bath at a temperature of approximately 80 degrees Celsius. All colour changes were recorded.

## Water Tank Case Study

787 Words | 4 PagesTo find the volume of the quarter shaped tank you would have to use the volume of the sphere using the equation V=4/3(3.14)r^3. You would substitute the radius of 70 feet into the equation, V=4/3(3.14)(70*70*70). You would multiply the radius 3 times since it's the radius cubed. Once you use a calculator to solve it and you get the answer 1,436,026.67 feet. That's just the volume of the quarter tank so the find the volume of the main tank you would divide 1,436,026.67 by 4
