Methane Bubble Flame Tower--A Spectacularly Engaging Way to Teach Density
Sandoval, Christopher
Teaching Science, v58 n1 p54-55 Mar 2012
This article presents a demonstration using methane bubble flame tower that offers a fun and relatively cheap way of demonstrating what happens when there is a density difference. Teachers can do this as a predict-observe-explain demonstration after the students have learned about density to extend their learning and get into some higher order thinking. (Contains 4 images.)
