Question 257823

Erza performed this experiment and collected the following data:

Mass of empty flask = 96.1 g

Mass of flask completely filled with water = 358.9 g

Mass of flask partially filled with water = 154.5 g

Hot water bath = 100.0 °C.

Cold water bath = 18.3 °C.

Using both algebraic and graphical methods, calculate the value that Erza would determine for absolute zero. Be sure to submit an excel file in the “PRE-8” files submission.

Remember that the density of water is not 1 g/mL at this temperature.
