So, I poured some canola oil into a pot of cold water, and most of the oil went to the top and floated, but a small portion sank to the bottom.



You can't really see it very well, but it was definitely at the bottom. Could someone explain this?

Strange... It could have been a lump of slightly denser oil though

Aren't cold liquids denser than not-cold liquids?

Don't trust that though, haven't taken science in a year.

They usually are because the molecules scrunch together and become smaller, but denser

Was the oil mixed very well?

I'm not really sure, but when i put a fork in the water and brought the oil at the bottom to the surface, it floated....

This is the answer.

That little bubble down there isn't on top probably because it's concentration of [x] isn't as high/low as the big one.

Mix the oil completely, then try it.

That would hardly be a test, as this hasn't happened to me ever before, why would I assume it would happen a second time?

Temperature variations changes the density of a said mass.

Cold oil drown in hot water. But if it stays after the temperature stabilized, your water or oil
might have impurities in it changing its density.

There you go.

My guess is that you poured it in fast enough for its momentum to allow some of it to hit the bottom of the container, where it stuck. Just like if you throw a heap of water upwards: most of it will end up on the floor but if you throw it hard enough then some of it will remain stuck to the ceiling.
