Foil Mini Lab

During our last mini lab, we attempted to find the thickness of aluminum foil. We discovered that aluminum foil is .014 millimeters thick.

We figured this out by first determining the volume in cubic centimeters. From there, we determined the area using conversions. After that, we found the volume in millimeters cubed in order to plug our values into the equation of volume/area=height. Finally, we used V/A=H to find the thickness of aluminum foil. Our result is pretty reliable because we utilized significant digits throughout our measurements and calculations to improve accuracy and precision.
