**Students will** 1) do the experiments to determine the density of a metallic solids (cylinder and ball) and use this result to identify the materials. **(Exercise 1, 2, and 3)** 2) making careful measurements, record data, and use propagation rules to find uncertainties in calculated results. Students utilize observational techniques that minimize systematic effects in measurements, record data illustrating all the pertinent attributes, such as, low dispersion, labels and units to identify the measured quantities and relevant descriptions for future references and demonstrate a working knowledge of the application of statistical procedures in the analysis. **(Exercise 2, 3, and 4)**
