Step 1

The average density can be calculated using the following data by adding the values of the given densities calculated by each of the students and then dividing the sum total by the total number of students.

Therefore, by making use of the excel and using the formula as shown below, one can make a table and find the average as shown below in the table.

Step 2

The average density of the given data is found to be 1.15 g/mL.

Step 3

The standard deviation in a given data is measure which is used to quantify the amount of variation that occurs in a given set of data values. ...
