I am a 2nd grade teacher teaching a lesson on liquids. When a student
concluded that the water sank because it weighed more than the oil, I want to
know if he was correct in this conclusion. I know that it sank because it was
denser, but since density is mass/volume and you measure liquids in volume, if
you measure equal volumes of a liquid, is there a liquid that would not sink,
but weigh more?
