SKU #RH-100
Availability: In Stock
Qty.
Captivate your students with this unique fluid.

Description

Captivate your students with this unique fluid. Its suspended pearly crystals show current movement continually, without settling out. This non-toxic, pearly white substance is a water-based suspension. When warmed or cooled, strong convection currents appear. Appropriate for all grade levels K-college. Although the fluid ships colorless, it may be easily tinted with food coloring. 32 oz container (~1 liter).

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

2-PS1-1

Students can use Rheoscopic Fluid to plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.

2-PS1-4

Students can use Rheoscopic Fluid to collect data to construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.

4-PS3-2

Students can use Rheoscopic Fluid to make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by heat currents.

MS-PS3-3

Students can use Rheoscopic Fluid to apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.

MS-PS3-4

Students can use Rheoscopic Fluid for an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.

MS-ESS2-6

Students can use Rheoscopic Fluid to observe and use in a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates.

DCI-MS/PS3.A: Definitions of Energy.

The temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of particles of matter.

HS-PS3-4

Students can use Rheoscopic Fluid to plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the transfer of thermal energy when two components of different temperature are combined within a closed system results in a more uniform energy distribution among the components in the system (Second Law of Thermodynamics).

HS-ESS2-4

Students can use Rheoscopic Fluid to observe and use in a model to describe how variations in the flow of energy into and out of Earth systems result in changes in climate.
