# In a laboratory activity, the density of a sample of vanadium is determined to be 6.9 g/cm3 at room temperature. what is the percent error for the determined value? a. 0.15% b. 0.87% c. 13% d. 15%

D) 15%
Hope this helps :)

The percentage error is 1.33 %.

Explanation:

To calculate the percentage error, we use the equation:

We are given:

Putting values in above equation, we get:

Hence, the percentage error is 13 %.

13%

Explanation:

The theoretical value for the density of vanadium is 6.11 g/cm3 while the experimental value determined in the laboratory is 6.9 g/cm3. To calculate the percentage error, the following formula is used

= 13%
