[#97] The Sweeter Side of Density  Michael Davis and Charles Henry
Students determine the density of different sugar solutions and then devise a method for layering them in a graduated cylinder. Dyeing the solutions with food coloring results in a rainbow-colored, heterogeneous mixture.

Soda Can Density and Unexpected Results  Erica K. Jacobsen, Donald R. Paulson, and Michael J. Sanger
Reader Donald R. Paulson reports on an unexpected result seen while performing a sink/float test similar to that described in the JCE Classroom Activity "Whatever Floats (or Sinks) Your Can", and describes an extension to the Activity. Activity author Michael J. Sanger and JCE editor-in-chief John W. Moore also discuss possible extensions.

Whatever Floats (or Sinks) Your Can  Michael J. Sanger
Students determine which property of the sodas (caffeine content, soda color, or sugar content) is responsible for whether soft-drink cans float or sink in water.
Sanger, Michael J. J. Chem. Educ. 2006, 83, 1632A.

Density - Float or Sink  
A collection of activities that explore basic concepts dealing with density. They are written for the 4-6th grade level.
Physical Properties
Milli?s Super Sorting Challenge  
In this open-ended activity, students are given the challenge of separating a number of materials, based on their physical properties. This is much like the challenge in sorting garbage for recycling. Students use magnetism, static charge, density and other factors to separate the mix.
Physical Properties
Rooting for Sink and Float  
A slice of carrot normally sinks in water. In this investigation students attempt to change this by adding salt to the water until it is more dense than the carrot. Will the carrot float? Students use the basic concepts of density to find out.
