no, oil is insoluble in water. it doesn't completely mix with the water.


Oil is NOT soluble in water. If you were to put oil into a glass of watter, you would notice the oil floats along the top.

There is a riddle to answer your question:

Oil and water did not get along until a slippery object came along.

see what this means is if you put oil and water they wont combine together, but if you put soap in with it they will mix perfectly
