Product Description

Mass Lab for Physical Science or Chemistry

This is a very simple lab activity for students who are just beginning to study the metric system and are learning to use lab equipment. This activity involves only the metric unit of mass. Students will answer questions about a quadruple or triple beam balance. Students will mass several items. Follow up questions involve converting between one metric unit and another. Students will use dimensional analysis to make conversions between units.


PLEASE NOTE: This lab is included in the following money-saving bundles:

Metric Measurements: Set of 3 Labs on Length, Mass, Volume and Temperature


This would be appropriate for middle school students and physical science students. I have also used this in my high school chemistry classes as each year I have many students who have never developed these skills in their previous science courses.

This activity is very basic. My purpose is reinforcement of basic lab skills, use of metric measurements, and conversion between units using dimensional analysis. This activity provides drill and practice.

Materials needed: Quadruple or triple beam balance. Items to be massed include: evaporating dish, rubber stopper, 100 mL beaker, a nickel, test tube tongs, and scissors.

Your download will include pages that are ready to be printed and passed out to your students. Each contains Title, Purpose, Materials, Procedure, Final Observations, Student Data Pages, and Answers to all questions and problems.

I have included several forms of this lab. Use one version if you prefer to have your students write their own lab report on their own notebook paper. Use the second form if you would like to have the students record their answers directly on the lab handouts. You will receive both an editable Word document as well as a pdf form of the lab.
