Polar. Just think of this, oil is non polar, oil doesnt mix with water.


quite simply: polar. Polar mixes well with polar. Nonpolar mixes well with nonpolar.


Water is a polar molecule. Nonpolar molecules (which is oil) don't mix well with polar molecules.


Lipids; they are nonpolar molecules, therefore will not mix with water, a polar molecule. Think, "Like to Like".


nonpolar. The fat molecules in peanut butter are nonpolar, that is why peanut butter doesn't evenly mix with water, a polar substance.


Oils have nonpolar molecules and water has polar molecules.


Molecules that do not dissolve in other molecules that are similar. If the molecules are not similar, they will not mix. Therefore, you have an immiscible liquid. Polar solvents will only dissolve polar compounds. (e.g. NaCl in H2O soln) Nonpolar solvents will only dissolve nonpolar compunds. (e.g Vitamin A in an oil) However, certain solvents are miscible with both polar and nonpolar solvents. An example of this would be ethanol (CH3CH2OH), which is miscible with water(polar) and hexane(nonpolar).


no, in the case of polar and nonpolar the two do not mix it's like putting olive oil in milk


Water is polar while oils are non-polar. Molecules that are polar will mix with other polar molecules, and non-polar molecules will mix with other non-polar molecules. Polar and non-polar molecules will not mix.


Polar compounds have poles that have a partial positive charge and a partial negative charge that attract other polar molecules. Nonpolar compounds do not have partially charged poles, so the polar substance is not attracted to them and they don't dissolve.


The molecule that makes up soap or detergent has a polar head and a nonpolar tail. In chemistry, compounds that are polar like to mix with other polar compounds and compounds that are nonpolar like to mix with other nonpolar compounds. This is why oil and water don't mix. Water is polar and oil is nonpolar. Oil and grease are a nonpolar compounds. When in water the soap molecules will arrange themselves in such a way that the nonpolar tails surround the grease creating a spherical droplet. On the face of this sphere is the polar heads of the soap molecule. This allows it to interact with the polar water. This is how soap and laundry detergent are able to remove oil and grease and wash it down the drain.


No, because water is polar and CH20 is nonpolar. Polar and nonpolar substances don't mix.


Water is a polar molecular, but oil is a non-polar molecule. Only combinations of polar-polar or nonpolar-nonpolar can mix into a solution. Thus they remain separated.


Oil Hydrophobic translates to 'water fearing' meaning that a compound such as oil will not mix well with water. This is because oil is a nonpolar molecule and water is polar. If you can remember that 'like dissolves like' then when two polar molecules mix, they will create a homogeneous mixture, but when a polar and a nonpolar molecule mix, they separate and do not interact with each other. e.g. hydrocarbons, wax, fats.


Hexane is a non-polar molecule and water is a polar molecule. Thus, they do not mix since polar molecules mix with polar ones and non-polar molecules mix with non-polar ones.


Vaseline is nonpolar. To prove to yourself that Vaseline is a nonpolar compound, simply try to mix it with water and see what happens.



You it is possible.However it is more favorable if you can mix a polar solution in a polar solution and a non-polar solution in another non-polar solution.


because water is polar and oil is nonpolar


Water and oil don't mix because water is a polar substance and oil is nonpolar. Polar substances will only dissolve other polar substances or ionic substances, but will not dissolve nonpolar substances. Remember "Like dissolves like."


Nonpolar molecules are not considered hydrophilic. This is because water is a polar solvent -- basically meaning that the electric charge on the surface of the molecule is not uniform -- so there can be local "poles" of positive or negative charge. For water, the oxygen is negative and the hydrogens are positive, so in this way the molecule is like a tiny magnet. Nonpolar molecules (like oil, gasoline, wax) have little or no such polarization, so do not have this "magnetic" behavior, which makes them unattractive to water and other polar solvents, hence the term "hydrophobic". However "hydrophobic" is really a misnomer, because small quantities of nonpolar molecules can mix into water and remain mixed; the fat in milk is an example. Nonpolar molecules are not "phobic" of water per se. What happens it at higher concentrations, water's "magnetic" nature makes it stick more strongly to itself than to nonpolar molecules, so these get excluded from the water mass. That is one reason why oil does not mix with water, because water would rather stick to itself if given the choice... Many molecules have regions that are polar and other regions that are nonpolar, so they can blend with both polar and nonpolar solvents. E.g. both oil and water can be mixed in alcohols, so a certain extent. Soaps and other emulsifiers have polar and nonpolar regions and thus have both hydrophilic and "hydrophobic" behavior.


Alkanes are saturated nonpolar hydrocarbons. Water, H2O, is a polar molecule. Organic molecules only mix readily with other molecules of the same polarity. Therefore, alkanes will not dissolve in water. Moreover, polar molecules dissolves with polar molecule only and non-polar molecule dissolves with non-polar only. It means like dissolves with like.


Water and oil don't mix because water is a polar substance and oil is nonpolar. Polar substances will only dissolve other polar substances or ionic substances, but will not dissolve nonpolar substances. Remember "Like dissolves like."
