This lab is intended to teach students that all liquids have varying densities. At this point, students should be familiar with the procedures for calculating volume and mass, and they should know the formula for density.
You will need the following materials: isopropyl alcohol, water, calculators, balances, graduated cylinders, pipettes, and a funnel.
The procedure for this lab is very clear and step by step,so I personally allow my students to complete this lab as a group without any direct instruction. Students will use the listed materials to find the density of 10 ml and 20 ml of alcohol and realize that although the quantity may increase, the density will remain the same. They will repeat the same procedure to calculate the density of water.
I have included the answer key to this lab as well as analysis questions. The lab is in Word so editing is possible. :) Thanks!
