A Lab Report on Measuring the Density of Unknown Plastic to Identify it

Abstract The average density of four separate pieces of polypropolene was determined to be 0.867g/cm3. Given the average densities of six different known plastics, we were able to identify the unknown plastic as PVC by its density. Procedures Materials All materials for this experiment were provided by the preproom. Techniques Gather all equipment, known plastics, …
