# Lab #1 Stations

```Station #1: Volume of Water
Purpose: To observe that not all lab equipment can be used for measurements.
If you want to measure a liquid, graduated cylinders are more useful than
glass bottles.
Data and Observations: Collect measurements:
1) water volume in bottle 2) volume in graduated cylinder

Data collection:
1. βI observe the water level to be at
_____ milli-liters (mL)β
2. βI am not sure, but I guess the
water level is at ____β
3. βWhere do I write this down?β
Station #2: Volume Displacement
Purpose: To measure the volume of an object by watching the water level
rise. The change in water volume equals the volume of the object.
Data and Observations: Collect measurements:
1) starting volume 2) final volume

Data collection:
4. βI observe the water level to be
at _____ milli-liters (mL)β
5. βI am not sure, but I guess the
water level is at ____β
6. βWhere do I write this down?β
Station #3: Mass and Displacement
Purpose: To measure the mass of an object by watching the weight rise.
The change in mass on the scale equals the mass of the object.
Data and Observations: Collect measurements:
1) starting mass 2) final mass

β Learning
β Place weight on scale
β Challenging
β End with: plastic and weight on scale
β Empowering
β Metal

Data collection:
7. βI observe the mass to be at
_____ kilo-grams (kg)β
8. βI am not sure, but I guess the
mass is at ____β
9. βWhere do I write this down?β
Station #4: Volume of a Solid
Purpose: To measure the volume of an object by measuring the sides.
Volume of the object (cm3) = length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm)
Data and Observations: Collect measurements:
1) length 2) width 3) height

Data collection:
10.
βI observe the edge to be
_____ centi-meters (cm)β
11.
βI am not sure, but I guess
the length is ____ (cm)β
12.
βWhere do I write this
down?β
