LITHIUM FLOATS ON IMMISCIBLE MINERAL OIL AND WATER<br />
Lithium Is The Least Dense of Solid Elements<br />
Lithium is less dense than mineral oil, and oil is less dense than water, so that lithium floats on oil and oil floats on water. The particles in oil are further apart, causing the oil to rise above the water.
