Experiment #6: Water vs Vegetable Oil 2 glasses Glass #1 – fill half full with water Glass #2 – fill half full with vegetable oil Add vegetable oil to Glass #1 (Before adding: “What will happen?”) – Vegetable Oil stays on top Add water to Glass #2 (Before adding: “What will happen?”) – Vegetable Oil moves to top Because vegetable oil is less dense it floats on top of water.
