A student finds the density of an ice cube to be 0.80g/cm3; it is actually 0.90 g/cm3. What is the percent deviation (percent error) in this calculation?
(1)6 percent
(2)11 percent
(3)13 percent
(4)88 percent

  1. Is this actual lab data or just a hypothetical situation? If these are actually experimental results, I would suspect that there was some sort of error that would account for such a sharp difference.
