Water is a polar molecule -- that is, electronic charges are localized on specific atoms. Oil is a non-polar molecule -- electronic charges are de-localized over all atoms. Water dissolves other polar molecules and oil dissolves other non-polar molecules but water does not dissolve oil (and vice-versa). Soap molecules are large. At one end they behave like polar molecules (electronic charges are isolated) and at the other end they behave like non-polar molecules (electronic charges are de-localized).
Grease or oil
Yes it does. The ethanol dissolves it.
Other nonpolar molecules are dissolved.
I don't think something can actually dissolve oil...
Oil is non-polar , as is Butane. Like dissolves like.
Salt will dissolve in oil very slightly but not truly. salt is an ionic compound (it has a positive/negative side) and oil is usually covalent (there is no charge). The rule for solubility of compounds is that like dissolves like, so ionic dissolves ionic and covalent dissolves covalent.
The Sudan IV dissolves into the oil making the oil red.
The salt will not dissolve in the oil because oil is nonpolar and salt is polar, and like dissolves like.
the salt dissolves
Oil paint dissolves in turpentine.
this is true because the oils attack the fumes in oil paints
Yes salt sinks in oil and dissolves in water taking a portion of oil with the salt.

"like dissolves like" is an expression used by chemists to remember how some solvents work. It refers to "polar" and "nonpolar" solvents and solutes. Basic example: Water is polar. Oil is non-polar. Water will not dissolve oil. Water is polar. Salt (NaCl) is also polar. Like dissolves like, so polar dissolves polar, so water dissolves salt.
Polar ANYTHING dissolves in water (as long as it's soluable)! Water is polar! And Polar solvents dissolve polar (or ionic) solutes! That's why salt dissolves in water and oil doesn't. (Oil is nonpolar.) This is true the other way as well. Nonpolar solutes can dissolve in nonpolar solvents. That's why oil dissolves in benzene (C6H6) and salt doesn't!
you can't - clove oil dissolves/degrades the plastic - the damage is permanent.
There is no water based solvent to dissolve oil based paint.
nothing, oil won't dissolve in water because like dissolves like and water is polar and oil is nonpolar
Water and oil do not mix because water is a polar substance and oil is nonpolar. The general rule of solubility is like dissolves like.
The baking soda dissolves in the water
