Chemistry 51 Experiment 3 Introduction to Density
Weigh a clean, dry 25-mL or 50-mL graduated cylinder. Remove it from balance and add 15.0 mL of distilled water and read the volume to the nearest 0.1 mL (carefully observe the bottom of the meniscus). Re-weigh the graduated cylinder now containing water. Calculate the mass of water and the density of the water using the equation, d = m/V.
