The solubility of solids mixed with liquids, liquids mixed with other liquids, and gases mixed with liquids is a vitally important factor within chemistry, and the solubility of solids within liquids is particularly significant.
Have you ever wondered why salt dissolves completely in water, but the oil in some salad dressing never mixes with the vinegar? This simple question of why some substances mix while others do not is explained by a concept known as solubility.
Liquids also exhibit varying solubility with one another. Some liquids, like isopropyl alcohol and water, show great solubility with one another.
Based on these properties, there are several examples of solubility. Salt, for instance, is soluble in water, but it isn't soluble in oil. It is possible to add both cream and sugar to coffee because both are soluble in the drink. Another example of solubility is in the air: oxygen is soluble in nitrogen.
