Household science experiments for kids: A density of self-experiment to try & Share:
In this household science experiment you will need:
A clear vessel, syrups (eg, red raspberry syrup), water (possibly with ink or food coloring,colored), edible oil, various small items for dipping (eg, screws / nuts, grapes, cherry tomatoes, acorns, nuts, pasta, small pine cones, chestnut, Lego bricks …)
First fullness of the syrup, then the oil and finally the water carefully into the vessel. Wait untilthe liquids are sold in layers. Now give careful various objects into the jar and watch what happens.
What happened in household science experiment for kids?
The liquids do not mix, but form three layers. Below syrup, in the middle of the water andabove the oil.
These three liquids have different densities *. The density is most easily explained as follows: Fill each cup 3 equal you with oil, water and syrup, these cups are 3 different weight. The cup is lighter than water, the cup syrup. Pour the water carefully over the syrup, then “floats” over the water to the syrup. Syrup thus has a greater density than water.
Just as the fluids behave the objects. The metal screw has the greatest density and sinks to the bottom, while the glans swims with less density above. The highly water-containingtomato has a similar density as water and floats in the water layer.
