Easy Science Experiment for Kids How to Do a 6 Layer Density Tower of Liquids Video

This video demonstrates an amazing experiment of creating a 6 layer density tower.

                           Six layers Density Tower Experiment

This experiment is a good example to understand the concept of density.

Requirements: –

  • Syrup
  • Milk
  • Dish Soap
  • Water
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Food colours
  • Funnels
  • Spoon

Procedure: –

  • Pour equal amounts of each liquid in small cups.
  • Add 2-3 drops of blue food colour in water and 2-3 drops of red food colour in rubbing alcohol.
  • Take cylindrical glass in which you want to form the density tower and pour syrup in it.
  • It is very important to layer all the liquids slowly in the container. Any liquid should not touch the side walls of container. You can use the funnel or back of a spoon to do that.
  • Then pour milk and a layer will be formed.
  • After that add dish soap, then water in which you have mixed blue food colour already.
  • Then add vegetable oil slowly and after that pour rubbing alcohol which is of red colour due to food colour.
  • Now you will see that all the liquids are separated and they are not mixing with each other. Your six layer density tower is ready.
