1. First, Bennett measured the mass of the graduated cylinder.
2. Next, he measured out 50.0 mL of syrup. Next he put the graduated cylinder (with the syrup in it) back on the scale and measure the total mass.
3. Now that he had the mass of the table syrup, and knew that its volume was 50.0 mL (because that's what he measured out), he divided the mass by the volume to get the density. Finally, he poured the syrup into the tall glass. He repeated this procedure for both the water and the vegetable oil.
4. Once he measured the density of all three substances, look at the tall glass. You should
see that the table syrup is all at the bottom of the glass, the water forms a layer above
that, and the vegetable oil is all in one layer on top!
