Lab Density Gizmo Activity

 

This worksheet should be completed as you work through the Internet site:

 

Complete the following tables: Round the numbers to the nearest 10th.

1. Use the scale to measure mass and the graduate cylinder to find the volume of each object.

2. Place the appropriate units inside of the parentheses( ).

3. Rank the objects from lowest "1" to highest "10" density. (from 1 - 10)

4. Use the formula: Density= Mass/Volume
