Anything can float in different liquids as long as the object's density is less than that of the liquid's density.

oil and water <><><> Some liquids, such as oil and water, do not mix- as they have different densities- so the lighter one (oil) will float on the heavier one.

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.

Hot liquids float above cool liquids because hot liquids weight less than cold liquids.not useful

It floats in different levels because the two liquids are different. They're densities are different from one another.

Some liquids are lighter than others because they are less dense. So when mixed together, the liquids with the lower densities will float.

Because they aren't soluble in each other and have different densities.

On some liquids it will float, on others it will not.

Depends on the liquid, different liquids have different densities thus different things will float or sink in them. If it's water you're try throwing the object in a swimming pool.

In general, a solid is more dense than the liquid form of that same substance. But there is a wide range of densities of solids and liquids, and there are lots of solids that will float on different liquids. Most wood will float on water, and lead will float on liquid mercury.

In a mixture of different liquids, the one with the lowest density will float to the top.

What liquid? Being plastic, they certainly float in water.

A needle can be made to float on very still water.

in relation to solids or liquids in liquids: Density. A lighter density compound/liquid will float in a heavier density liquid

Yes. Not on air, but on top of others. Low viscosity liquids, such as oil, can float on water because they are less dense than water.

Different specific gravity. Heavier ones go to the bottom. Lighter ones float on top .

Yes because different types of liquids have different densities so put it this way: water's Density= 1.0g/Cubic cm and a plastic is 1.3g/cubic cm. The plastic would sink in the water

Solid iron will float in liquid mercury. In most liquids it will sink.

oils can float on water, even if you try to shake them up it will separate in minutes.

Yes, this is the principle of buoyancy. This is what makes balloons float in the air and boats float on water.

The rate of evaporation is different for different liquids.

gasoline/petrol,,,,,,,,,,, oil base products

These liquids have different chemical composition and structure.

how do different liquids affect a rose

they have different densities (some are less dense than others) and so 'float' on one another...and or their molecules have different atomic structures which dont mix with each other.

the less dense liquid will float to the top and the more dense liquid will drift to the bottom
