Problem

How is the miscibility of a liquid with water related to the liquid's polarity? Check all that apply

The more polar the liquid, the more likely that it is miscible with water.

The polarity of a liquid does not affect its miscibility with water.

The less polar the liquid, the more likely that it is miscible with water.

The more polar the liquid, the less likely that it is miscible with water.

Solution

We have to find a relation between the polarity of a liquid and its miscibility with water.

Miscibility is a property that describes the ability of two liquids to mix in all proportions and make a homogenous mixture (solution).


The miscibility of two liquids is linked to the type of intermolecular forces present in both liquids.


As a general rule: like dissolves like.


Polar liquids tend to mix well with polar liquids and nonpolar liquids tend to mix well with nonpolar liquids.
