Learn how to determine density and displacement.
- Students will determine the density of four metals by determining their mass and displacement
- Aligned to NGSS Practices
In this exercise, you will determine the density of four metals, similar in appearance. Mass will be determined using an Ohaus Scout® Pro electronic balance and volume will be calculated using Archimedes Principle of Displacement. The data obtained will then be compared to published density values. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups.
