Why is a water more resistant than air?

To find out why water is more resistant than air we did a little experiment by filling up half a measuring cylinder with oil, water and in one cylinder there was nothing inside that was representing air. We did this by dropping a marble at the same time in the measuring cylinder three times. The quickest was air the second quickest was water and the last was oil because it was more dense.

Can you describe the particles in a gas, liquid and solid?

    Most people voted that the air would be the quickest.

    The oil was the slowest therefore it was the thickest substance in all three tubes. By Neave Curtis 5sk

    Air’s particles are more spread out so objects can easily pass through it. Tilly 5L0

    Oil’s particles are much closer together so it is the thickest. Tilly 5L0

    Solid’s particles are so close together that nothing can get through it. Tilly 5L0

    A solid is we’re the particles are so close together that nothing can get through it.

    I dropped the marble into the oil and it was last every time.That is because the oil is the thickest. Tilly 5L0

    A gas is where the particles are separated.
