Answer ALL questions in the spaces provided.1
A student is asked to determine the density of a metal in the form of a thin sheet.The sheet is a square of approximately 00 mm×00 mm and has a thickness of about0.01 mm.(a (i Explain why a metre rule is suitable to measure the length of each side of thesheet.
