Activity #8 U Are So Dense!

Pupils watch as the teacher demonstrates: if a single liquid is placed in a U-shaped tube, the level of liquid on both sides are the same. When the mass is greater on one side than the other, liquid is pushed from one side to the other until the masses balance. They then watch as a second liquid such as isopropyl rubbing alcolhol or a saturated salt water solution is added to one side of the U-shaped without mixing.

Lesson Planet has been one of the primary ingredients for the mortar I need in order to successfully provide a positive learning environment for my students. It saves me the effort of weeding through the abyss of internet resources available and provides quality resources from qualified and experienced teachers. Thank You!!!
