Milk weighs more because it is more dense.

Milk is a complex mixture containing sugars, salts, lipids and proteins. As a consequence its mass/volume or density and its specific gravity vary with the type of cow and the specific cow.
To minimize variables the milk or water must be at the same temperature as the density of water increases as the temperature lowers (until 4oC). The density of milk = 1.003073 - 0.000179t - 0.000368F + 0.00374N, where t = temperature in degrees C; F = percent fat; and N = percent nonfat solid. Comparing the resulting data for several types of cattle, the mean specific gravity of Holstein milk at 20 C/20 C is 1.0330 (range 1.0268 to 1.0385) and for Ayrshire milk is 1.0317 (range 1.0231 to 1.0357), while Jersey milk also has a mean of 1.0330 (range 1.0240 to 1.0369). [see Sherbon JW, Physical Properties of Milk, Chapter 8 in Wong et al, 1988]
Milk is more dense than water by 2% to 4%. This is about the weight of penny per litre.

# Does milk weigh more than water?

The density of [cow's] milk varies, depending on the fat content, but is always just slightly greater than the density of water.

# Which weighs more ice or water?

They weigh the same per mole, but ice is less dense.

# Why does frozen water weigh more?

it doesn't. as a liquid forms into a solid it forms more symmetrical patterns, and therefore its density increases, however there is still the same number of particles per uni

# What weighs more cream or milk?

Milk. In fresh milk cream floats on top of the milk. The cream doesn't rise as stated, the milk sinks. If water is added to gasoline or diesel the water sinks to the bottom, t

OBVIOUSLY motor oil is heavier

# Is milk more dense then water?

Yes, because Milk has protein and fat and water is just well... water.

# Does a milk jug full of water weigh more than a milk jug full of air?

yes, because they are both liquids and in the same size container.. true. They are both liquids; at room temperature air is a gas. If you were to cool the room to the point w

# Why does milk weigh more than water?

Because it's either denser or more dense. How do you pronounce it?

# What weighs more milk or water?

Type your answer here... they both weigh the same because if you pour the same amount of milk as water they would both weigh

# Does milk weigh the same as water?

No, milk weight varies depending on the milk fat content.

# Why does water weigh more then gasoline?

Water weighs more than gasoline because the particles in water are more dense than those in gasoline. This is because water molecules are highly polar and tend to attract e

# What weighs more - a gallon of water or a gallon of milk?

At 20 o C or 293 K or 68 o F, the densities ofwater and raw milk are 0.998 and 1.03 g/cm 3 respectively. As the density of raw milk is slightly more than thatof water, 1 gal
