What will happen when 100 ml of diethyl ether are added to 100 ml of water and thoroughly mixed?
a.) Water will form a separate layer on top of the ether layer.
b.)The temperature of the mixture will significantly increase.
c.)There will be a chemical reaction between ether and water.
d)Ether will separate from water and form a layer on top.
e)Ether will fully dissolve in water.

  • Chemistry -

    Isn't ether mostly insoluble in H2O? And you know the density is less than 1 g/cc; therefore, suspect the answer is d.

  • Chemistry -

    answer would be d

  • Chemistry -

    It is D
