When you performed Step 2 of the procedure, you actually made a cylinder of M&M’S®. The cylinder was rather “smushed,” and the height of the cylinder was the thickness of an M&M’S®. Recall that the equation for the volume of a cylinder is V = (3.14)r2h.
Rearrange the equation for “h.” Show your work.
Using the data from Table 1 and your equation, calculate the average thickness (height) of an M&M’S® for each trial. Record your calculated values in Table 1. Hint: Students often forget that they must use the radius, and not the diameter, in the equation. Copy Table 1 into the assignment.
