Paper Title
An Applied Mechanics Investigation to experimentally determine the density of plasticine in tribological systems
  Harsh Agarwal

The research paper caters to the identification of the flow behavior of plasticine as a vital component in the physical synthesis of metals, which is associated with the density of plasticine used. Tribological manufacturers implement materials that operate on a mechanism suitable to their respective system thus, accurate measures of density correlate with the optimal functioning of mechanical and thermal devices. A molded, spherical form of plasticine was used in this experiment. It was important to establish the relationship between the mass of the sphere and the diameter of its cube in order to mathematically calculate the density of plasticine through the rate of change of mass with cubic diameter. The experiment was in agreement with theory (within error) and external variables were adequately controlled in an attempt to produce reliable data. The density of plasticine was calculated to be 1.34 g/cm3 with an 8% percentage error associated with it. The experiment was successful in achieving the outcome, although there were certain limitations in the methodology that produced the difference with its literature value.
