Which will float: Peeled Grapes or Unpeeled Grapes?






















Supplies: Grapes, Carbonated Soda, Clear Container

What happens: Fill your container up with carbonated soda.  Drop a few unpeeled grapes
in...what happened?  Now peel a few grapes and drop them in.  Did they sink...float...or
both?

Explanation: The peeled grapes attract bubbles that increase volume without increasing
mass much...with decreases density.  As the density decreases they rise.  When they reach
the top the bubbles pop and it starts all over again.
