Title: The Density of Minerals PDF
Url: http://www.maine.gov/dacf/mgs/education/lessons/act19.pdf
Publisher: Maine. Department of Conservation.
Description: In this activity, students will learn to measure the density of various minerals. The activity will reinforce the usefulness of density as a physical test for identification of minerals. Using a selection of mineral specimens of varying densities, they will weigh each one in air, immerse it in a graduated cylinder of water, and measure the amount of water displaced by the specimen. Dividing the weight of the specimen by the volume of displaced water yields the density of the specimen. A student worksheet and discussion questions are provided.
