What does insoluble mean?
Insoluble means unable to be dissolved (as in liquids, usually water). for example iron filings are insoluble - they cannot be dissolved in water It means it won't dissolve in a particular solvent. NOTHING is completely insoluble and there is a solvent for almost any substance. Example : Styrofoam cups are insoluble in coffee, but they are soluble in gasoline. Most plastics and metals are insoluble in water.
