In this density demonstration, students compare a can of diet coke to a can of regular coke. They list the similarities and differences of each prior to the demonstration. The cans are placed in a tank of water and students record their observations and explain the results. They are shown the NutraSweet in the diet coke compared to the sugar in the regular coke. Students discuss mass, volume and density in relation to the demonstration.
