In this measurement lab, you will be using a meter stick (or 30cm ruler) to measure the base and height of your triangle(s). You will also be using a triple beam balance to measure the mass of each triangle. Before starting, each team needs a #2 pencil, a pair of scissors, a meter stick (0r 30 cm ruler), a protractor, a triple beam balance, and access to the Internet to submit your data and conclusions. In the second part of the lab you will need to use EXCEL and print your graphs. Part I: Measurements
Before using your scissors to reduce the size of your triangle, measure its initial base, height, and hypotenuse. Measure each to the nearest 1/10^{th} of a centimeter.

Next, use a triple beam balance to measure the gravitational mass of your triangle to the nearest 1/100 ^{th} of a gram. Remember that your balance must be zeroed before any measurements can be taken.
