Why does oil float on water?

2 answers


Oil is less dense than water. This feels counter intuitive because oil FEELS thicker in your hands. The thickness is a result of viscosity - the stiffness of the fluid - not the density - the mass of the fluid per volume.


Don't ask why, just cover yourself in oil and float in rain to troll the libs
