Names 1. Title-Ocean Water Properties Lab 2. Purpose-The purpose of this experiment is to explore the physical properties of Ocean water. Questions: 1. What is the density of salt water? 2. What is the density of freshwater? 3. What is the difference between water of high salinity (very salty) and low salinity (not very salty)? 4. What effect does density have on water currents? 5. What is the density of a carrot/potato? 3. Hypothesis (predictions) -I predict that the density salt water is… -I predict that density of freshwater is… -I predict that the density of the potato/carrot is… -I predict that density effects water currents…(how?) 4. Procedure 1. Obtain materials 2. Tare scale 3. Write the rest of your procedures here! 5. Data Table Item Potato/Carrot (determined using salt water) Freshwater Mass (g) ÷ Volume (mL) = Density (g/mL) Ocean Water (from Venice Beach) Observations on density: Observations on colored ice cube (relate to density and temperature): 6. Results (graph here) Click on insert, picture, and chart. Format the cells to reflect the density data. 7. Conclusion-FOLLOW THE RERUN FORMAT and address all 5 questions! Do not forget to post your conclusion on nicenet (each individual) and bring in paper copies (one for each person) on Monday! Happy Thanksgiving.
