The turbulent mixing region between similar and dissimilar fluids is investigated experimentally. Profiles which fit a set of criteria for similarity are compared to a similar solution of a previous paper. Agreement is good for the homogeneous case. For the heterogeneous cases, velocity profile fits are adequate but the density profile fits are poor due to the body force which was not included in the analysis.
