How will you separate a mixture of oil and water?


#2

To separate a mixture of oil and water, we need a separating funnel as both are immiscible liquids.
Pour the mixture in separating funnel and let the funnel stand undisturbed for sometime. So that separate layer of oil and water are formed. Open the stopcock of the separating funnel and pour out the lower layer of water carefully.
