To determine the density of block of aluminum, you measured the mass at 101.1 g and a volume of 38.2 cm3 . When you looked up the value for aluminum density you found out it should be 2700 kg/m3 What is the percent error for your experimental data?

a) 1.98%
c) 19.8%
b) 0.198 %
d) cannot determine

  • physics -

    101.1g = 0.1011kg,

    V = 10^-6m^3/cm^3 * 38.2cm^3 =
    38.2*10^-6m^3.

    Density = 0.1011kg / 38.2*10^-6m^3 =
    2.6466*10^-3 * 10^6 = 2647kg/m^3.

    Error = 2700 - 2647 = 53kg/m^3.

    %Error = (53/2700) * 100% = 1.96.

    ans. = a.
