  2.03) Diameter of a coin is measured ast.cm and its height (thickness) is measured as 0.024 cm and weight 5.3grams. Calculate density of the coin and compare it with the density of copper 8.96 gr/cm3. Could your coin bepure copper? What is the precision in length (delta h) and precision in mass (delta m) based on themeasurements given above.

Step 1

The density of the coin is given by equation (1). Density is a characteristic property of a substance. The density of a substance is the relationship between the mass of the substance and how much space it takes up.

Step 2

From the calculations it is shown that the coin is not a copper. The pr...
