In this experiment, we will explore the difference between a can of Cola and a can of Cola Zero in water. This one will not take long to perform, but it is really fascinating. This is an experiment about density – what floats and what doesn’t? And why is it so?
Remember to start the experiment with a hypothesis, what do you think will happen?
The Cola can contain sugar, which is missing in the Cola Zero can.
The Cola Zero can contain sweeteners which has a higher density than water and that is what causes the Cola Zero can to float.
Try other things in your home. What floats and what sinks?
