Thickness of Metal Foil

Determine the density of a metal sample.
Determine the thickness of a sample of foil of the same metal.
Identify the metal
Determine the percent error in your calculations

Solid Hunk mass __________ g
volume __________ cm3
density __________ _____
Foil mass __________ _____
volume __________ _____
length __________ _____
width __________ _____
thickness __________ _____

Identification of Metal
Use a table of properties of elements, or the periodic table, to find a metal (or metals) that matches the denisty of your sample.

Percent Error
Based on the metal you chose, calculate the percent error in your measured denisty.
