Summary of Density

Type of Resource



The goal of the Liquid Density virtual lab is to allow students to investigate how mass per unit volume equals density for a variety of liquids. Students learn about substance properties by seeing if the shape of the liquid’s container, the amount of liquid, or the type of liquid (oil or water) impact density.

Performance Expectations

HS-PS1-2   Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.

MS-PS1-2   Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
