Saturday Morning Science: Color Patterns in Water

10 am to noon
Taught by Mark Kent

Color Patterns in Water
Interfaces occur in two fluids that have different densities. For example, a water/air interface occurs where the surface of a mass of water meets air, and is quite familiar to us: the surface of a glass of water, the surface of a river, and the surface of the ocean are examples.

The instability at the surface between two fluids of different densities, which occurs when gravity or some equivalent force acts on two fluids of different density, is called the Rayleigh–Taylor instability, or RT instability (after Lord Rayleigh and G. I. Taylor). It especially occurs when the fluid with higher density is above the fluid with the lower density, as when water is balanced on oil.
