Metal Cylinders are mainly used to demonstrate variation of densities among different metals. Despite the fact that these metals are all the same size and the same shape, they don't weigh the same. The difference is so much that you can identify some of them by closed eyes. Comparison can be made just by holding each metal cylinder on hand or by using a scale. Students can use different methods to measure and calculate the density of each metal and guess what they are.
Measuring density is one of the methods scientists use to verify or identify each metal. Each metals also has a distinct color that may assist in identifying a metal. Metal cylinders in this set are not stamped or labeled. Trying to identify each metal is an educational challenge. Perfect for science enthusiasts, collectors, or science experiments. With these metal cylinders you can study the different properties of metals.
Dimensions of each metal cylinder are as follows:
Diameter: 1/2 inch (about 13 mm)
Height: 2 inches (about 55 mm)
This metal collection includes the following metals:
- Zinc, Zn
- Iron, Fe (Chromium Plated). This piece includes a small hole on one end for attaching small hook. The small screw hooks can be purchased from craft stores.
- Lead, Pb
- Copper, Cu
- Aluminum, Al
Warning: If you touch lead metal, you must wash your hand by soap and water to make sure you will not accidentally ingest lead.
