# Calculate the mass of the LIQUID ONLY for EACH of the 5 volumes of liquid. Results are listed belowRoom temperature: 24.1 C Mass of the graduated cylinder: 20.35 g Volume 1 = 1.00 mL Mass 1 = 21.16 g Volume 2 = 2.00 mL Mass 2 = 21.97 g Volume 3 = 3.00 mL Mass 3 = 22.78 g Volume 4 = 4.00 mL Mass 4 = 23.59 g Volume 5 = 5.00 mL Mass 5 = 24.40 g

To find the mass of the liquid, you take the mass of the graduated cylinder + the liquid minus the mass of the empty graduated cylinder.

For volume 1:  21.16 g - 20.35 g = 0.81 g for mass of liquid

For volume 2: 21.97 - 20.35 = 1.62 g

To find the mass of the liquid, you take the mass of the graduated cylinder + the liquid minus the mass of the empty graduated cylinder.

For volume 1:  21.16 g - 20.35 g = 0.81 g for mass of liquid

For volume 2: 21.97 - 20.35 = 1.62 g

For volume 3:  22.78 - 20.35 = 2.43 g

For volume 4: 23.59 g - 20.35 g = 3.24 g

For volume 5: 24.40 - 20.35 = 4.05 g
