Will do float silver over mercury?

, por F_y_Q

Imagine that you heat a system with upper temperatures than the fusion points of silver and mercury. If you put in contact both substances, will do silver float over mercury? Look for the information that you need on the Internet and explain your answer.


SOLUCIÓN:

The fluids, remember that silver and mercury will be in the liquid state, they will order their positions according to the value of their densities, the higher the density, the lower the position.
Looking for the density data for mercury and silver, we obtain: d_{Hg} = 13.58\textstyle \frac{g}{mL} and d_{Ag} = 10.49\textstyle \frac{g}{mL}. Silver will float over the mercury because its density is smaller than the density of mercury.
