# Measuring The Density Of Copper And The Soda Had An Effect On Its Density

In the first half of the experiment, the density of copper is calculated using two different methods of measurement. The objective of the experiment was to compare the two techniques and decide which one was more accurate. The density of copper is 8.96 g/mL (Copper 1). The average density calculated by the class for the method using water displacement for the large rectangular block was 8.78 g/mL, a difference of .18 than the actual density amount. In comparison, those who used the caliper calculated the density to be, on average, 8.83 g/mL for the large rectangular block, a deviation of .13 from the actual amount. For the other copper pieces, the small rectangular block and small cylinder, the caliper calculated a density that was in close agreement to the actual density than the water displacement method. In addition, the deviation of the water displacement can be large, for example, the density that I calculated for large rectangle block was 12 g/mL, a difference of 3.04, which is a huge variance. Furthermore, the standard…
