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.

You now have two values for the thickness of an M&M’S® in

Table 1. Determine the average M&M’S® thickness using these

values and record your value in Table 3.

You have just determined a value for the thickness of an

M&M’S® using the indirect method. What makes this method

“indirect”?
