The purpose of this experiment is to compare the different densities of different liquids. Density is a comparison between an object's mass and volume. Density = Mass divided by Volume. If the weight (or mass) of something increases but the volume stays the same, the density has to go up. If the mass decreases but the volume stays the same, the density has to go down. This experiment will show how the weight of certain liquids react to each other.

The seven liquids I have chosen for the experiment have different weights and textures. My hypothesis is that the liquids that have more density, even though I am using the same amount of liquid, will be on the bottom of the column. The liquids that are less dense will then layer on top of the more dense liquid. They will create a layer of seven different liquids one on top of the other.

Most of the research I did for this experiment was online. I found a lot of different information about the densities of different liquids. One web site that was most helpful was stevespanglerscience.com. I learned how different liquids have different densities. The same amount of oil has a different density than the same amount of water, for example. I also watched a video on youtube.com showing how the experiment works. Some liquids that have different densities are baby oil, vegetable oil, water, milk, dawn dish soap and maple syrup. Each one can be measured out in the same amount, but will have different densities.

Follow Up Questions Show all work for questions involving calculations. Part I Use the concepts/vocabulary of density to explain why the liquids formed layers in Part I of the procedure. (8 pts) The liquids formed layers because they all had different densities. The liquids with light density were towards the top of the layers. What was the control used during the liquid portion of Part I of this experiment (8 pts) (Hint What did you do the same with each liquid to ensure a fair comparison) The control used during the portion of part I was the amount of liquid used. Rank the following in terms of relative density (9 pts) Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) lowest relative density Liquid dishwashing detergent- intermediate relative density Dark corn syrup-high relative density Vegetable oil-second lowest relative density (intermediate) Glycerin-second highest relative density Rubber stopper- second highest relative density Cork stopper- low relative density (ended up with the alcohol Wood- low relative density (ended at the top with the rubber alchohol. Lead- highest relative density Part II (7 pts each) In Part II, what happened to the cans of soda when you placed them in water Use the concepts/vocabulary of volume and mass to explain the final positions of the cans in the sink full of water. The diet soda floated in the water while the regular soda sank. The regular soda had a higher relative…

For this experiment, I will be testing the density of three different kinds of oil: olive oil, mineral oil, and Wilbert 's lemon oil. I will test the oils ' density before and after being placed in the freezer to see if there is a noticeable difference in the density of the oil. I predict that all of the oils featured in this experiment will be more dense after sitting in the freezer for an hour. I came up with this hypothesis after reviewing other density related science experiments. What further assisted in the making of this hypothesis was the recalling of the fact that objects with lower temperatures (such as air or water) become denser.…

This laboratory involved utilizing equipment to dilute a sugar water solution. It also created solutions containing varying levels of concentrations and densities. Equations were used to figure the molecular weight of the sugar, and the number of moles of sugar in the volumetric flask. There was also an equation to figure the Molarity, as well. As a result of the experiment, I now have a better understanding of the density of a concentration, and what Molarity is .…

In this lab, the density of 20 glass beads were determined using two different methods and the results were compared to see how close the values were to each other. In first method the volume of each individual bead was measured using the diameter of each bead, along with the mass. In the second method the beads we treated as a whole unit. The total mass was measured and volume was measured based on the amount of water that was displaced in a graduated cylinder. Then, the beads were swapped with 20 different glass beads of the same type. The procedure was repeated and the results were compared to the data of the first bead set to look for any systematic errors that may have occurred. During the experiment, the data was used to see whether the diameter, mass, and density were constant between the individual beads. However, the main goal of the experiment was to answer the question of whether or not individual density average agreed with the bulk density.…

Density is how compact particles are inside an object. Objects can be different sizes but have the same density because the density depends on how close particles are together, not the size of an object. The density of water is 1 g/㎤. Any object with a density less than that will float. Any object with density more than that will sink. Carbon dioxide, or CO2, also played a big role in this experiment. Many soft drinks contain CO2. Studies show that Sierra Mist had the most carbonation out of most soft drinks. There was a lot of carbon dioxide in the soda. That was the reason the raisins would float up and down.…

- Each liquid that was used in Part I has its own independent density. Density being the relationship between the mass and volume of a substance. In this portion of the lab we explored relative density, each liquid compared to the others. The corn syrup was the most dense, in comparison to the other liquids. Whereas the vegetable oil was the least dense compared to the other liquids. The liquids in between followed this same principle in their respective orders.…
