Establish a Linear Relationship From the Amount of Liquid Displaced by an Object.
What is the volume, V, in the cylinder after you add:
(1). 3 objects?
(2). 7 objects?
(3). objects? Explain your reasoning.
(4). If you wanted to make the water reach the highest mark on the cylinder, how many objects would you need?
(5). Plot and label points that show your measurements from the experiment.
(6). Does it matter which triangle you use to compute the slope? Why or why not?
(7). The equation of the line in the experiment has two numbers and two variables. What physical quantities do the two numbers represent?
(8). What does V represent and what does represent?
