Density Determination

Students observe 2 demonstrations of density. In this density lesson plan, students observe a vial with various substances of different densities. Students then observe the differences between a diet coke and a regular coke can when on a double pan balance. Students add sugar on top of the coke can until it balances with the diet coke. Students are introduced to the concept of density and they are given the formula and apply it to the demonstrations.
