Fluid Density Levels

This experiment shows how different materials have different densities. In this case honey is placed on the bottom, water is placed above that, vegetable oil next and finally rubbing alcohol. This mixture creates four levels of fluids having different densities. If the mixture is then shaken, the fluids mix and the water, alcohol and honey form a layer and the oil forms a separate layer thus changing how the system looks.
