Mixture of ethanol and various oils and additives

Rubbing alcohol is actually a mixture. To be specific it is a homogeneous mixture.

Rubbing alcohol is also known as isopropanol or isopropyl alcohol. It is a compound, not a mixture, unless it is added to water.

Rubbing alcohol is a homogeneous mixture.

Solutions are a specific type of mixture. Rubbing alcohol is usually 70% or so 2-propanol with the remainder being water. This is technically both a solution and a mixture.

Alcohol is a homogeneous pure compound not a mixture. Correct, unless you are discussing rubbing alcohol or an alcoholic beverage, which is a mixture of an alcohol (there are hundreds) and mostly water and other ingredients.

Basically you get weaker rubbing alcohol. Rubbing alcohol is already a mixture of water and isopropyl alcohol.

no it is a homogeneous mixture

There is no reaction, you simply get a mixture of rubbing alcohol and methanol.

The chemical symbol for rubbing alcohol is C3H8O.

Rubbing alcohol is not a pure substance, it is made up of a mixture. It is good to rub this mixture on cuts to keep them from getting infected.

It is a mixture of denatured alcohol, water and agents added to make the alcohol unpalatable to drink and sometimes colorants. There are two common types of rubbing alcohol, Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol and Ethyl Alcohol Rubbing Alcohol.

Rubbing alcohol consists of a mixture of isopropyl alcohol (also called 2-propanol), or C3H8O, and water.

Rubbing alcohol is mixture with different compositions; rubbing alcohol can contain isopropyl alcohol or ethanol plus methanol, coloring and odorous substances etc.

No, rubbing alcohol is made up of elements. It is mostly ethanol alcohol which is C2H5OH

Are you looking for the word isopropyl alcohol?

Isopropyl alcohol and rubbing alcohol are not the same thing. For most uses, yes you can. This is because: • Rubbing alcohol may contain either isopropyl alcohol or ethanol. • Rubbing alcohol is a mixture of compounds (type of denatured alcohol) whereas isopropyl alcohol is not.

Rubbing alcohol is not a substance because it is not pure, it is a mixture of (more than 4) compounds, one of which is ethyl alcohol, among water, isopropyl alcohol and detergent (soap)

Rubbing alcohol contain denaturated ethanol or iso-propanol, a colored additive, etc.

Isopropyl Alcohol is more commonly known as rubbing alcohol. It is a flammable, colorless chemical compound with a very strong odor. It has the molecular formula of C3H8O or C3H7OH.

If there is enough liquid, the sugar will dissolve, as rubbing alcohol is a mixture of water (about 30%) with an alcohol. Sugar is soluble in both liquids. * BTW, rubbing alcohol is poisonous. *
