To test the density of sugar in a beverage
100mL graduated cylinder
1) Place a clean 100mL graduated cylinder on the balance and hit the “rezero” button. 2) Fill the cylinder to the 10mL mark with a beverage. Measure and record the mass of the beverage in the graduated cylinder. 3) Measure and record the temperature of the beverage.
4) Rezero the balance with the graduated cylinder containing the beverage. Fill the graduated cylinder to the 20mL mark with a second sample of the same beverage. Measure and record the mass of the beverage sample in the graduated cylinder. 5) Calculate and record the density of each beverage sample.
Calculations and Graphs
Seemingly healthy drinks can have high sugar contents.
Discussion of Theory
This experiment worked on the idea of density.
Experimental Sources of Error
-Graduated cylinder not accurate enough
The purpose of the lab is to find out the density of stoppers, the density of a 100% sucrose solution, and to figure out the density and the percentage of sucrose in the unknown solution. To find out the density, the mass and volume needs to be measured for all three. Then, the mass will be divided by the volume. To find out the percentage of sucrose in the unknown solution, there has to be a comparison between the density of the unknown solution and the densities of different percentages of sucrose solutions.

In the densitylab unknown metals were weighed using beakers filled with water and an electronic scale. First the metal objects were weighed using an electronic scale. Then using water, the beakers were filled half way. Next, the metal objects were poured in. Then the amount of how much the water rose after the metal was put in is checked. Lastly, record the data and clean the objects used and put away.
Research question: If mass and volume are correctly measured can the density of an unknown metal be calculated.
Controlled: Water, Electronic Scale, Graduated Cylinder
Dependent: Density; Mass and Volume
Apron, Goggles, Electronic Balance, Beaker, Graduated Cylinder, water, unknown metal samples
Uncertainties: Electronic Balance ± 0.01g
Hexagon ± 0.0mL Graduated Cylinder ± 1.0 mL
The independent variable is measured based off the how much the water rises.
The dependent variable is measured when the Initial Volume is subtracted from the final volume, which gives the density of the metal sample.
Controlling the Controlled Variables: The water and electronic scale were controlled. These materials were controlled because the amount of water put into the graduated cylinder could differ, and if the scale is not zeroed again after putting down the paper towel the mass could be...

2. Be sure to include the Excel graph you have created from your data. Using the density of the unknown, determine the percentage of the unknown solution by using the
trendline formula. Determine if there is a positive linear correlation.

2. To use the intensive property of density to identify an unknown substance.
1. Obtain a bag marked with a number containing a cube and a cylinder from the teacher. Record the number on the bag in the data table.
Density of a cube:
Using a balance, record the mass of the cube to the nearest tenth of a gram. Then measure the length, width and height of the cube to the nearest hundredth of a cm. Last, calculate the volume of a cube using the formula L x W x H.
Density of a cylinder by water displacement:
Using a balance, record the mass of the cylinder to the nearest tenth of a gram. Then fill a graduated cylinder of water about half full. Record the volume to the nearest tenth of a mL. After that you carefully drop the cylinder in the graduated cylinder and record the new volume of water to the nearest tenth of a mL. The last thing you do is subtract the volume of the water you had at the beginning from the volume of water you had after adding the cylinder. This number is the volume of your cylinder.

Protest is important to maintain the survival of aboriginal people of Australia.
Jimmy Munday survives as an individual because he has the ability to protest against the Neville chef protector of aborigines. He finds his identity within his family and this security allows him ot critically assess and comment on the motives behind government decisions such as the moving of indigenous people from the Government Well Aboriginal Reserve in Northam to Moore River.
Jack Davis shows this to be true in no sugar when Jimmy said ”Whole town knows why we’re goin”.”Coz wetjalas in this town don’t want us ‘ere’.” Jimmy’s identity and survival are built on outward protest but other members of his family find more subtle forms of protest. Therefore, this whole concept represents that the protest againt the motives of white people has lead the Aboroginal people to survive in a great depression.
Famliy is the cornerstone and also maintain the survival of individual even in most traumatic of circumstances.

What is density?
We will be working with many different liquids. Each of the liquids has a different, characteristic density. One way to think about density is how thick or heavy an object is. The liquids with lighter densities will float. The liquids with heavier densities will drop to the bottom. You may have noticed that sometimes, liquids mix together – this is because the chemicals dissolve in each other. During our experiment, the liquids will stay separate because we will add the liquids in order of decreasing density! As long as the materials do not mix or react, the less dense materials will float on top of the more dense ones. This lab will create colorful, layered rows.
Density can be calculated! Density values are often used in scientific calculations!
Mass is related to weight, or how heavy something is, and Volume is how much space the liquid takes up. Density is simply the mass of a substance divided by its volume!
We will use 5 different liquids:
A. Vegetable oil
B. Dishwashing liquid
E. Rubbing alcohol
Since all of the liquids are in containers of equal volume, you can put the liquids in order of increasing density by their weight. Pick up each container; which one feels...
