Title PhET Density Lab
Description This lab helps drive home the point of "density is mass divided by volume." It shows students what happens when they change volume but keep mass constant, when they change mass but keep volume constant, and when they change both of them. It also introduces them to the Archimedes method of finding the volume and density of an object.
