Product Details

General, Organic and Biological Chemistry

Have you ever noticed it is easier to float in the ocean than in a swimming pool? This is because seawater has greater density than fresh water due to the presence of dissolved salt in the ocean. What factors determine the density of a solution? Can the density of a solution be used to determine how much of a particular substance is dissolved in it? Determine the sugar content of beverages by creating a calibration curve using the density of five reference solutions by comparing the results against provided values on nutrition labels.

Complete for 24 students working in pairs.
