Definition of Miscible Liquids

Miscible liquids are defined as those liquids which when combined in any proportion or concentration, form a homogenous mixture. Hence, miscibility is the property of two or more substances to completely dissolve in each other in whatever proportions. This term is most applicable to liquids but can be used for solids as well as gases.


Example of Miscible Liquids:

An example of a miscible solution is formed by the combination of water and ethanol. They form a homogenous solution at every concentration. On the contrary, those liquids which are unable to dissolve in each other are known as immiscible liquids for example oil and water.
