    Examples:

            Samuel Morton collected data on cranial capacity, hoping to prove that white races had a larger brain size than dark races. He measured cranial capacity by filling the cranium with mustard seed and measuring how much seed each skull could hold. He performed the experiment himself, knowing which skulls belonged to whites and which belonged to blacks. His results confirmed an average cranial capacity of 87 cubic inches for whites, but only 83 cubic inches for Africans.
