There liquids of different densities are mixed. Because they are not miscible (do not form a homogeneous solution with one another), they from discrete layers, one on top of the other. Sketch the result of mixing carbon tetrachloride (CCL4, d = 1.58 b/cm3), mercury (d = 13.546 g/cm3), and water (d = 1.00 g/cm3).

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

A diagram of three given liquid on the basis of density has to be sketched.

Concept introduction:

Density:

Density can be defined as property that links mass of an object to its volume.  It derived quantity and its unit is gml-1 for liquids and gcm-3 for solid.  The density of material can be calculated with the help of formula,

Density=Mass(g)Volume(mlorcm3)

Explanation

The given three liquids are not miscible each other, so they form three distinct layers in the graduated cylinder.  The densest liquid settles at bottom and the lowest dense lies at the top.  Hence, the resulting sketch is,
