Scientists have filmed an electron in motion for the first time, using a new technique that will allow researchers to study the tiny particle's movements directly.
Previously it was impossible to photograph electrons because of their extreme speediness, so scientists had to rely on more indirect methods. These methods could only measure the effect of an electron's movem

Salinity Density Demonstration
Salinity affects the density of water. In this video, 9th grade teacher Rod Benson performs a demonstration on the study of ocean currents for his students using golf balls. The step by step narrative demonstration uses golf balls with fresh water and salty water.Explanations are included. This would also be a great demonstration while teaching density.
