I have a problem, the density of the metal = mass (2) - mass (1) over Volume (2) - Volume (1) =
My first mass and volume are 15.098g and 5.5 mL. the second mass and volume are 11.3235g and 4.0 mL. I got 9.04g/mL as my answer if this isn’t right can you walk me through the steps?
I don't know how the experiment is being performed; however, if the formula
(M2-M1)/(V2-V1) is correct, then
M2-M1 = 11.3235-15.098 = -3.77
V2-V1 = 4.0-5.5 = -1.5
Then 3.77/1.5 = ?? which isn't 9.04.
