Water and oil do not mix. They are said to be immiscible. This is because water is a polar molecule – its structure means that is has a positive charge one end and a negative charge the other end. Water molecules stick together because the positive end of one water molecule is attracted to the negative end of another.... read more ›
Oil doesn't dissolve in water, i.e., it is immiscible in water. This is because its molecules are non-polar while water is a polar solvent. Non-polar substances do not dissolve in polar solvents and vice-versa.... see more ›

Oil is a complex mixture of compounds, each of which partitions uniquely between oil and water; therefore, the water solubility varies between oils. The solubility of oil in water is low, generally less than 100 ppm.... view details ›
Any hydrocarbon (e.g. pentane, hexane, heptane) or non polar solvent will dissolve oil as will many slightly polar compounds like diethyl ether.... see more ›
However, many liquids are pure substances. Vegetable oil is just vegetable oil. It has no water.... see more ›
|Things||Did it dissolve or not?||What happened after Keeping for 2 minutes?|
|3. Chalk powder||No||Chalk settled down at the bottom of the glass.|
|4. 1 Spoon milk||Yes||Milk and water got mixed together completely.|
|5. Oil||Yes||Oil floats on the surface of water.|
Water is only attracted to polar molecules. Because oil is non-polar, oil and water are not attracted so they cannot dissolve in each other.... continue reading ›
A heterogeneous mixture consists of two or more phases. When oil and water are combined, they do not mix evenly, but instead form two separate layers.... read more ›
Possible meaning: If you add oil to water, the oil tries to stay separate. This proverb is a way of saying that certain people or characteristics do not go together.... read more ›
Oil and water don't mix because water molecules are more attracted to each other than to oil molecules.... continue reading ›
- Ask what will happen when you mix oil and water together.
- Pour about ½ cup of oil into the drinking glass.
- Pour the same amount of water into the glass.
- Watch how the two separate.
- Explain density and ask which is denser, water or oil (the oil floats, showing it's less dense than water)

Finally, salt doesn't dissolve in oil at all because oil has practically no charge at all. Some of these relationships are shown in Figure 3. A difference in charge also explains why oil and water will not mix. Since oil molecules are almost entirely uncharged, they won't mix with charged water molecules.... see details ›
Water is considered a contaminant to your engine oil and will affect its performance. Once contaminated, the motor oil won't be able to lubricate moving parts of the engine efficiently. This could lead to serious engine problems, such as broken piston rings, damaged combustion chamber and cylinder head valves.... see more ›
