Determining the Density of Apple Juice
Purpose: To determine the density of apple juice.
Materials and Methods:
 Determine the mass of an empty graduated cylinder.
 Add 5 mL of apple juice to the graduated cylinder and determine the mass of
apple juice + graduated cylinder.
 Add another 5 mL (total = 10 mL) of apple juice to the cylinder and determine the mass of apple
juice + graduated cylinder.
 Add another 5 mL (total = 15 mL) of apple juice to the cylinder and determine the mass of apple
juice + graduated cylinder.
 Determine the mass of apple juice only for step 24 and then find the density
(show all your work in the table).
Observations:
Mass of empty graduated cylinder: ______________
Volume of apple juice 
Mass of apple juice + graduated cylinder 
Mass of apple juice only 
Density of apple juice (show all your work) 
5 mL




10 mL




15 mL




Questions: (Answer on a separate page. Show all your work.)
 Calculate the average density for your apple juice sample.
 An empty graduated cylinder has a mass of 55 g. When 27 mL of an unknown liquid is added the mass of the graduated cylinder + liquid is now 108 g. Calculate the density of the unknown liquid.
