Introduction About Sinking Object:
If the weight force down is larger than the upward push of the water on the object then the object will sink. If the reverse is true then the object will rise rising is the opposite of sinking.To know more about Sinking Object ,watch Sinking Object Video to learn more .
The corn syrup was the most dense liquid, so it sank to the bottom of the cup. The water was less dense than the corn syrup, but more dense than the oil, so it settled on top of the corn syrup. The oil was the least dense, so it floated on top of the water.
The objects that you dropped into the cup had different densities. Each object sank into the cup until it got to a liquid that was more dense than it. The cork was not very dense at all, so it floated on the surface of the oil. The wax fell into the oil, but not all the way to the water, so it was more dense than the cork, but not as dense as water. The grape and the raisin fell to the bottom of the water layer, but not into the corn syrup. That means that they were less dense than the corn syrup, but more dense than the water! The penny and screw were very dense; they sank all the way to the bottom of the corn syrup.To know more about Sinking Object ,watch Sinking Object Video to learn more .
