In this module, the interactions between liquids of different densities are shown by placing multiple liquids in a test tube. Each liquid will "isolate" itself from the others, thus showing clear boundaries between different-density liquids! Additionally, solid materials of different weight (paperclip, bottle cap, etc.) will be dropped into the test tube to see how the heavier materials will sink into the liquids with higher densities.
