The Density of Liquids and Solids

For Teachers 9th - Higher Ed Standards
There are underwater rivers that flow on the ocean floor thanks to a difference in density. Scholars learn about the density in both liquids and solids in the second activity of an 11-part series. They then determine the density of...

Determination of the Density of Liquids

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Do you know how to make liquids float or sink? Pupils find the density of three different liquids in the ninth lesson of an 11-part series. They must find the mass and volume first and then apply the formula. Once they master this,...

Don't Be Too Flaky

For Students 6th - 8th
Snow, ice, and water are all composed of H2O. Does that mean they all have the same volume? Discover the ways that the densities of these substances determine their volumes, and how they change based on their current states of matter....

Density Column Lab - Part 2

For Teachers 7th - 9th Standards
Groups suspend objects within layers of liquids to determine the densities of different liquids and compare them to the densities of objects calculated in Part 1. The groups then carefully test their calculations by layering the liquids...
