Which is heavier water or rubbing alcohol?
If you filled a 1L bottle with water and another 1L bottle with rubbing alcohol, which bottle would feel heavier? Use your data to thoroghly explain why. The rubbing alcohol would be heavier because water's density is 1.0, and rubbing alcohol's density is much more than that. Right???
What will happen if you put colored water on a piece f foil and then added a drop of rubbing alcohol?
A thin layer of water might repel a drop of alcohol, however rubbing alcohol is miscible in water in larger quantities. Isopropyl alcohol, of the form C3H7OH, is what we know as rubbing alcohol. The repulsion could be because of the propyl group, however the hydroxyl group should form intermolecular hydrogen bonds with water.
The density of rubbing alcohol is 75% that of water. Thus ice (frozen water which is roughly equal in density to liquid water), sinks in rubbing alcohol since it has more mass per cubic millimeter than the alcohol does. In order to float, the object would have to be less dense than the alcohol per cubic space.
Only in water mixtures such as "rubbing alcohol". Salt (sodium chloride) is not soluble in alcohol, but is soluble in water. Nearly all "rubbing alcohol" contains water. To prove this for yourself, pour a small bowl of rubbing alcohol, then add a teaspoon of salt. It will mostly remain at the bottom of the bowl. Now add water to the bowl, forming a miscible mixture of water and alcohol. After enough water is added, the…
I believe it's ethyl alcohol. Also I think rubbing alcohol is 70% isopropyl alcohol and 30% water.. Hope i helped! Rubbing alcohol is a solution of 70% isopropyl alcohol (also called isopropanol or 2-propanol), and 30% Deionized water. Ethyl alcohol is something entirely different. Note that there are also different solutions of Isopropyl alcohol that can also be used for disinfecting and first aid, but Rubbing alcohol is the household name for the 70% Isopropyl…
