Steve Spangler Science: Oil and Water

Oil and water just don’t mix but they do provide for some amazing hands-on science.

There’s something very important about oil and water that you probably already know: oil doesn’t mix with water! That explains why oil spills on the ocean float on the surface and why throwing water on a grease fire is just going to make everything worse. Since you realize that oil and water don’t mix and never will (without some chemical help), let’s have some fun with how they repel each other.
