Fractional Distillation Take a virtual tour of a typical oil refinery
Fractional Distillation This learning object is a detailed explanation of the distillation of crude oil.
Topic 4 Flow Rate and Viscosity
Mix and Flow of Matter - use interactive learning objects to help understand the properties of fluids and technologies developed to provide solutions to practical problems.
Topic 5 Density
Topic 6 Buoyancy
Density and Buoyancy When will objects float and when will they sink? Learn how buoyancy works with blocks. Arrows show the applied forces, and you can modify the properties of the blocks and the fluid. Lab Report
Buoyancy Explorer - "Does it float or sink? Use this virtual experiment to try different solids and liquids. Guess what will happen. Then drop the blocks into the liquids and see for yourself. "
Buoyant Forces In Liquids This Java applet shows a simple experiment concerning the buoyancy in a liquid: A solid body hanging from a spring balance is dipped into a liquid.
