Mixing & Separating Experiment - Three Layer Float
Three Layer Float
you will need:
• Tall Clear Cup
1. Fill on
third of the cup with honey.
2. Fill the next third with
3. Fill the last third with
4. Wait for all three substances
5. Carefully drop in the coin,
then the grape and then the cork.
Each of the three
liquids have different densities,
therefore making three separate
layers. All three items (grape,
coin and cork) have different densities
and therefore float in separate
layers according to their density.
The most dense goes
to the bottom and the least dense
goes to the top.
