I was recently given this course work to find out whether a 1p and 2p coins are made out of the same metal and weigh the same.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was given the formulas to use to find out what it is....

Formulas:

Density= mass/volume

Volume = ¢³r©÷h

Mass =g/ number of coins.

Apparatus:

-20 1p coins

-20 2p coins

-A ruler (to hold them in place when measuring them)

-weight scale (for the mass)

I am finding so much trouble as i can't find any information about the scientific knowledge, or how to attempt it.

true i weighed the coins. But i was told it was not good enough to enable me to pass as i am to think as an A'level student on how to attempt this task.

Has anyone got any ideas on how or what i should do?

Please help me.
