Density Layer Experiment

 

We made a density experiment were we put some different weighted liquids on top of each other and see what goes on what.

The first time we did it we put in; fake maple syrup, corn syrup, milk, soup, water and rubbing alcohol. The milk messed it up. We think it was too light because it was 2% milk. And we realized the fake maple syrup went over the corn syrup.

The next time we did it we took away the milk and put in the corn syrup first. Here are the colors in order:

  • Purple & Clear = Corn Syrup
  • Brown = Fake Maple Syrup
  • Green = Dish Soap. Blue = H²O
  • Yellow = Vegetable Oil
  • Pink = Rubbing Alcohol

After we layered the liquids we put in the objects. We put in a ping-pong ball, a cork, a die, a pencil, a popcorn kernel, a bead, a eraser, and a ring.

I thought it was neat to see how everything “floated”.
