Solution

Separation of a mixture of two immiscible liquids

  • A separating funnel is used for the separation of a mixture of two immiscible liquids.
  • These immiscible liquids separate out into layers depending on their densities. The liquid with lower density will float on the top of the liquid with higher density.
  • Here, the density of water is less than that of chloroform.

Therefore, in the separating funnel, the upper layer will be water and the lower layer will be that of chloroform.
