oil and water characteristics difference
« on: October 20, 2017, 09:12:19 AM »
Why oil cannot get sprayed and dispersed if it's put in glass cleaner sprayer and the sprayer's knob is pressed, while the water will?
The knob would feel very hard if being pressed.

There are a number of properties that differ between water and other liquids, and if you spend some time thinking about them, you may be able to come up with some.  I say other liquids because "oil" can mean many things.  FWIW, there are sprayers designed to disperse oil that are used by industry.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.
