Density –>the mass of a substance per unit volume

 

Today since we couldn’t go to the Library we decided to do some science experiments and we focused on Density.  Our first experiment was with the density of liquids.

We mixed Syrup, Water, and Oil…

And then we explored to see what it would take to make an egg float.

We put a raw egg in a jar of water….

Finally, We made ooblec and explored the density of a Colloid

 

Colloid –> a substance that maintains properties of a solid and a liquid at the same time.

Ingredients

Corn Starch

Water

Food Coloring
