Density of Liquids

Density is a measurement of how tightly molecules are packed together. Calculating density is easy and makes a fun hands on math and science project. A while back we measured the density of a few solid materials. This time we found the density of liquids.

To calculate density first measure the quantity of a liquid (ml).


Next weight the liquid (grams).

Then divide to get grams/ml.

Water, dish soap and corn syrup are good liquids to try.
