Abstract The purpose of this experiment is to demonstrate the concept of density. It is important because density determines whether or not an object will float in a liquid or gas. This experiment will demonstrate this concept by providing various metal objects to identify, as well as by providing information on how to build a “mock” submarine. The experiment calls for the use of analytical balance to weigh objects and the measurement of liquids in a graduated cylinder. It also calls for the use of volume by measurement to find the volume and densities of the two unknown metals. My hypothesis states, if the density of an object is the same as the density of the water surrounding it, the object will stay hovering in the middle of the water without touching the floor or breaking the surface.
