density? _______________
3. In an oil spill, is the danger greater to birds and marine mammals than it is to fish and
other organisms that live on the ocean bottom?
4. How is the density of oil an advantage in the cleanup?
5. Corn syrup sinks when poured in water. Does water or corn syrup have the higher
density? ________________
6. Why would an oil spill be an even greater disaster if the density of oil were the same as
that of corn syrup?
