calculate the density of each of your mineral samples. How could you use the densities to identify the minerals?
If the densities are the same, the objects are the same. If the densities aren't same, the objects are different.
Key Concept Would density or color be more useful in identifying a particular mineral? Explain your answer.
I think density is more useful, it is more accurate becuase it will be the same ratio but one mineral can be more than one color.
