🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Martin's class at UCR.

Solution: The density of dichloromethane, an organic solvent, is 1.325 g/cm3 . If you mix 50 mL water and 50 mL dichloromethane together in a separatory funnel, which layer would be on top?   The density of diethyl ether, an organic solvent, is 0.706 g/cm3 . If you mix 50 mL water and 50 mL diethyl ether together in a separatory funnel, which layer would be on top?
