Super! Immiscible means that the mixture is heterogeneous, so, you can easily distinguish between the two liquids. As you saw in the previous module, a salt-water mixture is homogeneous, and so is not immiscible. If you leave a salt-water mixture undisturbed, the salt and water will not separate on their own.
Tea is usually made by mixing tea leaves in milk and heating the milk. The milk absorbs the flavour from the tea leaves. But, people usually don't want the tea leaves in the tea they drink.
How can we separate the tea leaves from the tea liquid in this container?
  • Heat the tea
  • Leave the tea undisturbed for some time
  • Use a filter
  • Mix the tea more so that the tea leaves dissolve in the tea
