building a hydrometer
Posted: Tue Jan 22, 2019 9:48 am
We've tried to build a hydrometer with a straw and clay but the results to measure the salinity of water are not accurate. Any ideas as to how to build a hydrometer that would give us accurate results? Thank you!

A quick online search turned up a few ways to build a hydrometer. One example can be found here:https://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Hydrometer
Once you've made a hydrometer, you have to calibrate it. Calibration instructions are included at the above link.
I hope this helps. Please ask again if you have more questions.
