 DENSITY OF DIFFERENT LIQUIDS - Sparklebox

# DENSITY OF DIFFERENT LIQUIDS

The density (more precisely, the volumetric mass density; also known as specific mass), of a substance is its mass per unit volume. The symbol most often used for density is ρ (the lower case Greek letter rho). Mathematically, density is defined as mass divided by volume.

where ρ is the density, m is the mass, and V is the volume

Density is a physical property of matter that expresses a relationship of mass to volume.Different materials have different densities.

Here we will perticularly discuss the density of three different liquids namely water,honey,oil with a simple experiment.

Density of these following liquids are

Water : 1 g/cm³

Honey : 1.43  g/cm³

Materials Required:

1)Test tube / Beaker / Transparent white plastic cup / Glass cup

2) Water

3) Honey

4) Cooking oil

Procedure:

1)Take a test tube/ Beaker / Transparent white plastic cup / Glass cup and add water .

2) Add honey to the water in the test tube.

3) Add oil to the same test tube

Observe the layers of different liquids. It’s happening because the densities of the three liquids are different. Now you know how the densities of the three liquids compare to each other. If you want to find out the approximate density of each, you can calculate it using this formula: Density = Mass/Volume Try at home and learn about the concept of density more clearly and if you have any doubt about the process check this video https://youtu.be/sHJo5Lq5hm0
