A1-03: DENSITY - VARIOUS BRICKS

PURPOSE: To demonstrate the concept of density through use of bricks of similar size but very different weights.

DESCRIPTION: This demonstration consists of four bricks of the standard "brick" size and shape, made respectively from: foam, concrete, steel, and lead. Because the sizes are similar and the weights different, the feature creating the difference must be the density, or mass per unit volume.

SUGGESTIONS: Let the students handle the bricks.

REFERENCES: (PIRA 1A10.55)

EQUIPMENT: Foam, concrete, steel and lead bricks.

SETUP TIME: 10 min.
