Magnet & water
First, use a magnet to get the iron nails out because iron is a magnetic material and will be attracted to the magnet. Now what you have left is the water and oil. Fortunately, oil is less dense than oil and it will float on top of the water. Use a separating funnel to tap the water out from the bottom and collect it in a container. You can also use a spoon to get the oil out from a container which contains the oil and water since oil floats on the surface.
They separate on their own. Oil remains on the top of the water.
Oil and water separate because oil is less dense than water. Because of this density, oil is 'lighter' than water, and floats on top of it.
because oil is insoluble in water and it is lighter the oil floats on the water
You cannot separate sand from water the sand dissolves making a mixture.You can only separate 2 things by making a compound a compound is like water and oil you can separate oil from water.
Let it set. The two will separate by themselves. "Oil & water don't mix."
The best way is to use a solvent to remove the oil. Then you filter out the iron filings and dry them.
Water is heavier than oil, so oil floats on top of water.
Oil is hydrophobic, meaning it doesn't actually dissolve in water. If you have a mixture of oil and water, let the solution sit for a while, and the two substances will eventually separate, with the oil on top.
put oil onit
No. That is why oil and water separate.
When oil is added to water the oil will remain on the surface of the water, separate from the water. Water has a higher density then the oil.
Oil and water seperate spontaneoulsy.
because oil is lighter than oil
Allow the mixture to sit until the oil and water have separated. Then pour off the oil.
use oil in the water
Because the oil is less dense then the water.
Because water is more dense than oil.
Motor oil is insoluble in water and it is denser in water. Therefore, motor oil will not mix with water. It will remain separate.
Oil and water separate because oil will float to the top and water will sink to the bottom. The reason oil wil float to the top because oil is non polar while water is compound polar. Separation by decantation and filtration.Separation by decantation and filtration.
Yes as The amount of emulsifier in the mixture of water and oil is increased the time taken for the oil and water to separate is increased.
