| TABLE-1. Indirect Measurement     |       |       |       |
Trial     | volume (CM)     | Diameter (CM)     | Radius (CM)     | M&M’s Thickness (CM)     |
1     | 75     | 11.34     | 5.69     | 0.738     |
2     | 83     | 12.27     | 6.135     | 0.702     |

  TABLE 2. Direct Measurement     |       |
Trial     | M&M’s Thickness (CM)     |
1     | 0.642     |
2     | 0.741     |
3     | 0.683     |

  TABLE 3. Calculated Averages     |       |
Method       | Calculated Average Thickness (CM)     |
Indirect (from Table 1)     | 0.72     |
Direct (From Table 2)     | 0.62     |

1.a)V=(3.14)r^2n
h=V/(3.14r^2)

1.b)
      | TABLE-1. Indirect Measurement     |       |       |       |
Trial     | volume (CM)     | Diameter (CM)     | Radius (CM)     | M&M’s Thickness (CM)     |
1     | 75     | 11.34     | 5.69     | 0.738     |
2     | 83     | 12.27     | 6.135     | 0.702     |

1.c)The average is 0.72
1.d) This method is considered indirect, because i’m not direct measuring the thickness of the M&M. I used a formula and gathered information to help find the average thicknsess

2)
  TABLE 2. Direct Measurement     |       |
Trial     | M&M’s Thickness (CM)     |
1     | 0.642     |
2     | 0.741     |
3     | 0.683     |

  TABLE 3. Calculated Averages     |       |
Method       | Calculated Average Thickness (CM)     |
Indirect (from Table 1)     | 0.72     |
Direct (From Table 2)     | 0.62     |

2.b) This is direct, because the measurements were from the M&M and the vernier caliper

3) The direct method is the best way to find the thickness of the M&M’s. The direct method doesn’t rely on a formula with the indirect method. There may have been errors as there were spaces in between the M&M. When they were in the circle and in the graduated cylinder.
