Product Description
Our density column lab puts a twist on students constructing a density column by having students:

- Calculate the density of the liquids in advance,
- Predict how the liquids will be layered in a graduated cylinder
- Construct the density column
- Optional part 3 have students add a marble and a popcorn kernel to their density columns
- Optional handout that the students infer what the atoms might look like inside these liquids.

Materials needed for this lab:
Triple beam balances or digital scales
Karo syrup, liquid soap, water, rubbing alcohol, oil
Containers to hold the liquid
Optional – popcorn kernel, marble, colored pencils, food coloring
