Miscible or Immiscible?
Homogeneous Solution - A solution which has uniform composition and properties throughout.
Miscible Liquids - Liquids that can mix with other liquids to form a homogeneous solution.
Immiscible Liquids - Liquids that cannot mix with other liquids to form a homogeneous solution.
Fractional Distillation can be used to separate mixtures of miscible liquids as it takes advantage of the different boiling points of each mixed liquid.
The mixture of liquids is heated and the liquids evaporate, the vapours then condense in a fractioning column - The fraction with the highest boiling point condenses near the bottom of the column, and the fraction with the lowest boiling point reaches the top of the column.
When you open the tap, the lower liquid runs out of the funnel and can be collected in a beaker. You then close the tap before the other liquid begins to escape out. You can collect this liquid with another beaker.
