Hi all! This is my first post here. I have a question regarding how to calculate the mass density of a steel sphere. Any help is much appreciated! 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The mass of the sphere is equal to 8.4 grams. The volume of the sphere is equal to 1060 cm^3. 2. Relevant equations The mass was found during our lab experiment. The volume was calculated from the equation: V = (4/3) pi R^3. The diameter of the sphere was 12.65 cm. Therefore, I calculated the volume as follows: (4/3) pi (12.65/2)^3 = 1060 cm^3. 3. The attempt at a solution Mass density is equal to mass/volume; therefore it should be 8.4g/1060cm^3 = 0.0079gm/cm^3. However, I'm also supposed to calculate the percent error for my lab report, and the "true" value for the mass density of steel is given as 7.9 gm/cm^3. Percent error is equal to (|Accepted - Measured|)/Accepted * 100, which, in this case, would be (|7.9 - 0.0079|)/7.9 * 100 = 99.9%. This gives me a percent error of almost 100%! What am I doing wrong in my calculations? Please help! Thank you!!
