I used a toothpick and if you tap it in the center of the milk you get little fat balls that roll on top of the milk

Our results looked like rings of all the different colors we used. My question is why and how did the individual colors separate?

kelbie, TX | (none)
the colors began to dritf into the milk. They had begun the go into a circular motion. Next a very very thin film that looked like a shiny,crystal,but milky substance. this project taught me that when you mix to common substances together you end up with something totally diffrent then what you started out with.things like physcial changes happen such as, color because they blend, form because it can run to any direction.

I used 2% milk beacuse we don't have whole milk.Also I used my finger. I put red, blue, orange, and green dye. When I put the dish soap in it turned into a star shape.

In the whole milk, the colors spread and mixed. In the 2%, the colors looked like my tye dye shirt because they overlapped instead of mixing.

As a family, we put our q-tips together, then at the same time touched then into the milk. I was cool, the colors went out in a start shape!

When you add the soap droplet to the milk, the soap changes a property of the milk called surface tension. When the surface tension breaks, the food color droplets can spread throughout the milk making a swirly pattern of many colors.
