Description:

Learners observe a tank of water containing cans of diet and regular sodas. The diet sodas float and the regular sodas sink. All the cans contain the same amount of liquid and the same amount of air. However, the sugar in regular sodas makes them denser than water so they sink. This is written as an exhibit, but can easily be adapted to become a demonstration or hands-on activity.
