OOPS!!!!! Name_____________________________________

Imagine that you work at a chemical plant. Four different liquid chemicals have accidentally
spilled into the same tank. The liquids do not dissolve in one another, so they must have settled in
the tank in four separate layers. The sides of the tank are made of steel, so you can only see the
surface of what’s inside - not the layers. The problem is that you need to remove the red chemical
to use in a reaction later this afternoon. How will you find and remove the red chemical? By
finding the chemicals’ densities, of course!

The following liquids were spilled into the tank:


Green Liquid Blue Liquid Red Liquid Yellow Liquid
Mass 36kg 129.6kg 115.2kg 96kg
Volume 48L 144L 96L 120L
Density

1. Calculate the density of each liquid and add the information to the data box above.

2. Determine the order in which the liquids have settled in the tank.
