differential densities

Alternate zones (and their interactions) of differing densities as in a vortex. For instance water floats on oil because water is less dense than oil. A container filled with low density air? is considerably less dense than high density water so the container will float on the water while resisting being under the water. Densities will seek their level of density (or tenuity) in proportion to the difference in densities. For instance, low density air released under high density water will rise until it finds equation of density at its own level of density in the atmosphere. [see specific gravity, striation, Vortex]
