Weight Forming: Group A Lab Data

Data Gathered

Note: Two different scales were used, for the sake of consistency data reporter dropped everything after the decimal for the scale that did display that data.

Note: For holes, a T denotes holes that were pushed all the way through the clay, N denotes holes that were not.
