Name the method you shall use to separate two immiscible liquids.
Hint: “Immiscible liquids are those which won't mix to give a single phase. Oil and water are examples of immiscible liquids. One floats on top of the other”.
Complete step by step answer: We know that the property of immiscibility is going to depend on the polarity of the liquids. -If two liquids are polar in nature they will miscible in one another very easily. -If two liquids are non-polar then also they will miscible very easily. -If one liquid is polar and the other liquid is non-polar they won’t miscible very easily and then they are called immiscible liquids. -But it is not that much easy to separate the two immiscible liquids. -There is a separate technique to separate those immiscible liquids. The name of the instrument which is used to separate two immiscible liquids is called as separating funnel.
-By using the separating funnel we can easily separate two immiscible liquids. -We have to take the two immiscible liquids into the separating funnel and close the separating funnel with a knob and leave it for a few minutes till the two layers separated. -In the picture itself it shows that the kerosene and water are two immiscible liquids separated. -The kerosene floats on the surface of water. -After separation of two immiscible layers remove the knob and collect the layers separately by using a stopcock.. -First by using the stopcock we can collect the water and then kerosene in two separate beakers.
Note: Don’t be confused with the words polar and non-polar. Polar means the chemicals which are soluble in water are called polar. Non-polar means the chemicals which are not soluble in water are called as non-polar.
