ANALYZE:

 

  1. As the volume of the Al block increased, the density _________ ?
  2.  As the mass of the Al block increased, the density ________ ? .  

 

CONCLUSIONS:

 

Answer your hypothesis. Determine whether the density of a substance depends on the amount of the substance. Explain how your results support your conclusions in at least 5 well formed sentences.  Was your hypothesis correct, why or why not?
