Chemistry: The Case of the Sunken Ice Cube

Students examine a density demonstration involving ice cubes and beakers of water and alcohol.

As a precautionary measure, students must wear chemical-resistant protective clothing while conducting additional experiments involving ethyl alcohol and other chemicals.
