The mass or density of the liquid depends on its nature.

The density of a material is for the liquid, the ratio of the density compared to that of water (at 4 ° C).

## Step 1: Test With Density of Liquids

In this first experience with liquids in order from bottom to top :

• honey 1 360 kg / m3
• Sugar Syrup 1 320 kg / m3
• Dishwashing Liquid 1 120 kg / m3
• Water 1 000 kg / m3
• Edible oil 920 kg / m3

In the second experience with liquids in order from bottom to top :

• Sugar Syrup 1 320 kg / m3
• Liquid for cutting metal 1 200 kg / m3
• Dishwashing Liquid 1 120 kg / m3
• Milk 1 030 kg / m3
• Water colored 1 000 kg / m3
• Edible oil 920 kg / m3
• Lamp Oil 850 kg / m3

If the density is low, the liquid will float.

If the density is higher, the liquid will flow.

This is why the petrol floats on water when there is a black tide.

## Step 2: Test With Density of Materials in Liquids

In this third experience with materials in the liquids in order from bottom to top :

• screw 7 500 kg / m3
• Corn 1 300 kg / m3
• ABS plastic 1 250 kg / m3
• PE-HD plastic 950 kg / m3
• PP plastique 860 kg / m3

If you use a 3D printer this experience is certainly very intersente for you.

It will let you visualized that the materials you will use will change the final weight of your object .

If you use a material in a liquid it can float or sink depending on the liquid and material used .
This is also why you will have more filament with PP (polypropylene) that in the ABS coil.

## Step 3: Cocktails Storey

You can also create cocktails storey for example (bottom to top):

• Grenadine syrup
• Orange juice
• Colored water
• Alcohol

Pretty cool ! Is not it?
I hope you enjoyed this instructable.
