# Do liquids with the highest density float at the top of a bottle?

123 ###### 2011-09-20 23:29:22

Liquids with a higher density than 1.0g will sink in water, so liquids with a lower density float to the top. For insitsance cold water sinks warm water rises bc cold water has a higher density per cm3 than warm water does.

## Related Questions in relation to solids or liquids in liquids: Density. A lighter density compound/liquid will float in a heavier density liquid Anything can float in different liquids as long as the object's density is less than that of the liquid's density. Yes, this is the principle of buoyancy. This is what makes balloons float in the air and boats float on water. Hi,This is because of the lower density of Iron than Mercury. Low density Products will float on the higher density liquids. In a mixture of different liquids, the one with the lowest density will float to the top.  the density of each of the fats. the higher density, the lower it will be in a mixture If the density of the object is greater than that of the liquid then it will sink. If the density of the object is lower it will float. To calculate density; density=mass(g)/volume(cm3) yes for the density of the bottle (plastic) is very small then the density of the water and depending on the volume of the water and whether the bottle have something in it.  That depends on what fills the remainder of the bottle. If it is air, the average density of your bottle will be less than the density of the liquid.That depends on what fills the remainder of the bottle.

Objects only float in liquids with a density greater than their own. A liquid that is less dense than ice. Pure alcohol is 70% of the density of water- and ice would not float in it. Pure water ice cubes always float. They float because the molecules of water rearrange into a crystalline shape when they freeze. That arrangement leaves more empty space between the molecules of water which reduces the density of the water in ice form. Lower density objects float on higher density liquids. what causes different liquids to form layers is the density of each liquid. Liquids that are more dense than other liquids will sink to the bottom. Liquids that are less dense will float to the top. i have a question very similar to thiss! i think the soda bottle would, becasue the milk jug would float in just regular water with a density of 1. the soda bottle has a density of 1.4, and if the sugar water is 1.5 then i think it would float because its density is less. but im no expert. ive been trying to look for the answer to this question as well. but that means a milk jug would float too because its density is less. its so confusing! sorry if that didnt help. An object will float if it has less density than the density of the liquid.An object will float if it has less density than the density of the liquid.An object will float if it has less density than the density of the liquid.An object will float if it has less density than the density of the liquid. A liquid with a higher density than 1g/cm3 (one gram per cubic centimeter) (the density of water) will sink in water. density of water=1.00 If an object (solid) has a density lower than the density of water, it will float. If it has a density higher, it will float. Hot liquids float above cool liquids because hot liquids weight less than cold liquids.not useful This is found out by knowing the densities of the liquids in question. The liquid with the smaller density will always be on top, while the liquid with the higher density will be at the bottom. the ability to float with density is almost impossible  More density will sink. Less density will float. Some liquids are lighter than others because they are less dense. So when mixed together, the liquids with the lower densities will float.
