Eight Layer Density Column Lab

Decent Essays
Eight Layer Density Column Topic: The purpose of this experiment was to compare the densities of eight pre-selected substances (in a liquid state) by placing them within a graduated cylinder. Abstract: This experiment served to analyze the densities of eight different substances by placing them within a container in the order of their perceived densities. From our results, we were able to determine that there was less mass per unit of volume for the items on the upper layers of the column compared to the denser items that constituted the base. The substances were ordered in the graduated cylinder (from top to bottom) from least dense to most dense. According to our table, dish soap was denser than whole milk, but yet it floated on top.
