F) OK, here is a practical problem in which you will
1) A ring, supposedly made of pure silver (Ag) has a
mass of 20.445 grams. When its volume is taken by
water displacement, it is found to have a volume of
1.95 mL. Calculate the density of the ring:
D = m/V
D = (20.445 g) / (1.95 mL)
D = 10.4846125 g/mL
D= 10.5 g/mL
2) Based on the actual density of silver (Ag) found
on Reference Table S, could this ring actually be
Yes –
Ag has a listed density of 10.500 on Reference
Table S.
Density and Thickness of Aluminum
Lab
Objective: I will successfully use known properties of
Aluminum to determine the thickness of a sheet of
aluminum foil to the correct level of precision.
Pre-Lab:
Why are you determining the density of aluminum in
this lab?
How does the density of aluminum foil differ from the
Once the density of aluminum is calculated,
what data will you need to determine the
thickness of the aluminum foil?
• Remember: D=m/V and V = L*W*H (H is
the thickness of the aluminum foil)
Knowing that D=m/V and V = L*W*H , how can
you rearrange the formulas to calculate the
thickness of the aluminum foil.
So….what do you need to know?
So procedures…
• Glassware is being used so…. goggles
• Levels of precision for out instruments??
