In this lab students will find the density of water at different volumes. They will learn that no matter the volume, the density of water will always be 1 g/mL.
Materials needed: triple beam balance, graduated cylinder, beaker, water, ruler.
This lab is a must do before you do any other fun sink-or-float labs. Students must learn that the density of water is 1 g/mL before they can understand why objects sink or float in water. Students have to collect data, graph their data, and answer post-lab questions.
