VIRTUAL DENSITY LAB

Students are to use the following website

http://ippex.pppl.gov/interactive/

to simulate their work on density by determining the mass and volume of five (5) different objects, and then calculate the density of each object. Once the density is determined, each object can be easily figured out whether it floats or sinks. Do remember that this is based on the relationship of the density of an object to the density of water, which we agreed upon to be 1 g/cm³.

Note that you are to use only the water to report your data, but you can try different liquids for your comparison purposes, but those do not need to be turned in; ONLY those that are used with water need to be turned in a table format as it is a summative evaluation (5 column-headings and 5 rows with the collected data).
