In determining the volume of an irregular shaped object with a graduated cylinder, any air bubbles sticking to the surface of the object when it is submerged cause systematic errors. Will this error give a density that is too high or too low?

Question

In determining the volume of an irregular shaped object with a graduated cylinder, any air bubbles sticking to the surface of the object when it is submerged cause systematic errors. Will this error give a density that is too high or too low?

Step 1

Density is defined as mass of the object divided by its volume. In measuring the volume of an irregular shaped object using a graduated cylinder, the air bubble get trapped in between the atoms ...
