Textbook Problem

Some salad dressings are made from a mixture of olive oil and vinegar. These two liquids are not significantly soluble in each other. If this mixture is allowed to sit the two liquids separate from each with the olive oil floating on top of the vinegar. Which liquid has the greater density?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The liquid (olive oil and vinegar) that has greater density has to be given.

Concept introduction:

Density:

Density can be defined as property that links mass of an object to its volume.  It derived quantity and its unit is gml-1 for liquids and gcm-3 for solid.  The density of material can be calculated with the help of formula,

  Density=Mass(g)Volume(mlorcm3)

Explanation

A liquid which is least dense would float on top of denser liquid

The density of olive oil ranges from 0.91-0.93gcm-3.

The density of vinegar is 1
