Today, we're going to take advantage of the double period and start a new lab.  We need to find the density of an unknown liquid.  Of course we can do that the traditional way with a graduated cylinder and a balance, but what if we have neither of those things?  We'll use Archimedes' Principle and a few basic objects to calculate the unknown density.  

If you finish, we'll continue to work on practice problems from Chapter 13:
