What is more dense than water?

Lighter liquids (like water or vegetable oil) are less dense than heavier liquids (like honey or corn syrup) so they float on top of the heavier liquids. The liquids that weigh more (a higher density) will sink below the liquids that weigh less (a lower density).

So, which is heavier a gallon of milk or water?

A cubic meter of milk (1000 liters) weigh between 27 and 33 kg heavier than water. That's because milk is about 87% water and all the other substances, excluding fat, are heavier than water.

What is a liquid heavier than water?

Likewise, if the mass decreases but the volume stays the same, then density goes down. Lighter liquids (like water or vegetable oil) are less dense than heavier liquids (like honey or corn syrup) so they float on top of the heavier liquids.

Is honey more or less dense than water?

The water is the second denser liquid analyzed, being heavier than the olive-oil and ethyl alcohol, and lighter than the honey. Not surprisingly, the olive-oil floats in water, having a less density than it. The olive-oil doesn't float in alcohol and, therefore, is heavier than it.
