Density Test

Experiments | 7-11 yrs | Video

REQUIREMENTS:-

  • A see-through container
  • Honey
  • Oil
  • Water

WHAT TO DO:-

First, pour the honey into the jar and then the oil, and water, last.

WHAT HAPPENS:-

The liquids do not mix, but separate into layers. The oil floats on the honey; the water sinks underneath the oil, but floats on the honey.

WHY THIS HAPPENS

This happens because each of the three liquid have different densities. The oil, which has the least density, floats on the water, but the honey- which has the maximum density, settles at the bottom.
TRY THIS:-
Now that you know different liquids can float together, try this experiment with vinegar, syrups, ketchup, groundnut oil. This will give you a better understanding of which liquid has a greater and lesser density.
