Solution: Which of the following statements is/are correct?a) Benzene (C6H6) is miscible in acetone (CH3COCH3)b) Acetonitrile (CH3CN) is miscible in dichloromethane (CH2Cl2)c) Acetic Acid (CH3COOH) is miscible

Solution: Which of the following statements is/are correct?a) Benzene (C6H6) is miscible in acetone (CH3COCH3)b) Acetonitrile (CH3CN) is miscible in dichloromethane (CH2Cl2)c) Acetic Acid (CH3COOH) is miscible

Problem

Which of the following statements is/are correct?

a) Benzene (C6H6) is miscible in acetone (CH3COCH3)


b) Acetonitrile (CH3CN) is miscible in dichloromethane (CH2Cl2)


c) Acetic Acid (CH3COOH) is miscible in octane (C8H18)

 

A. (a) only
B. (b) only
C. (c) only
D. (a) and (c)
E. (a) and (b)

Solution

We’re being asked to determine which of the given statements is/are correct. Each given statement talks about the miscibility of the given pair of compounds with each other.

miscible → they will mix and will form a homogeneous mixture
immiscible → they will not mix and will form a heterogeneous mixture


We’re going to use the theory “likes” dissolving “likes”  which states that the solvent can only completely dissolve the solute if they share similar polarity

Therefore, a pure solvent with similar polarity can successfully dissolve a solute to create a solution. 



Let's take a look at each given statement.


a) Benzene (C6H6) is miscible in acetone (CH3COCH3)
