A student adds 4 mL of acetic acid to a test tube containing 4 mL of distilled water. He then shakes the test tube and leaves it to settle. After about 10 minutes he observes:
A precipitate settling at the bottom of the test tube.
A layer of water over the layer of acetic acid.
A layer of acetic acid over the layer of water.
A clear colorless solution.
Acetic acid is completely miscible with water in all proportions.
When you add about 2 ml of acetic acid to a test tube containing an equal amount of distilled water and leave the test tube to settle shaking its contents, what will you observe in the test tube after about 5 minutes?
In an experiment to study the properties of acetic acid a student takes about 2 mL of acetic acid in a dry test tube. He adds about 2 mL of water to it and shakes the test tube well. He is likely to observe that:
