Mixing Oil and Water


What You Need:

While water often mixes with other liquids, it does not form a solution with oil. This is because water molecules are strongly attracted to each other and so are the oil molecules. This means that the water and oil molecules are so attracted to their own molecules that they just don't mix together. If you want to bring oil and water together, you need to try adding some dishwashing liquid or detergent to it. Detergent is attracted to both water and oil and this helps them join together and form something called an emulsion. This is why detergent helps takes the oil and grime off utensils when you are washing dishes.
