Experiment: Preparing a layered drink

With all the colourful liquids you can find in your kitchen, only your imagination is limiting what you can play with in this experiment!

Start with the least dense liquid and carefully add the others with increasing density.

Here are a couple of examples of liquids you might have at home:

Baby oil –  0.83 kg/L

Rapeseed oil – 0.92 kg/L

Ice cubes – 0.92 kg/L

Milk – 1.03 kg/L

Dish soap – 1.06 kg/L

Black currant juice – 1.33 kg/L

Honey – 1.40 kg/L

Baby oil, milk, dish soap, black currant juice and honey… might not taste very nice, but certainly looks awesome! Foto: P. Langebroek
