Essay on Research on Density
The topic of this experiment is Density. The objective is to find two ways in which the density of a given object can be determined, and to find out which of the two ways is more accurate and hence better to use in such a case. The two methods used in this experiment are finding the dimensions of the object and water displacement. These are two ways of finding the volume of an object, and they were chosen since the density of an object may be found using its mass and its volume. The experiment yielded two different density values, however when error analysis was conducted, the water displacement method was proven to be more accurate.

Procedure 2 required for the object to be placed into a beaker containing water, noting the volumes of water before and after the object is placed into the water. The difference between the initial and final volumes of water in the beaker should give the volume of the object placed in it. The object however,
