how many measurements did you take and to what uncertainty

3 trials to the hundereths

oh, +-.1 for volume, +/-.01 for mass
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
what was the substance that you were measurement what at were you comparing it to?
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
if your volume was of unit order, i.e, ~1 then your error comes almost entirely from your volume error

oh, so I just messed up on the volume some how and did good on the mass?
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
well if you cannot measure your volume within 10% error, then an 11.1% eroor in your final measurement is fine
