When you add about 2 ml of acetic acid to a test tube containing an equal amount of distilled water and leave the test tube to settle after shaking its contents, what will you observe in the test tube after about 5 minutes?
(A) A white precipitate settling at its bottom
(B) A clear colourless solution
(C) A layer of water over the layer of acetic acid
(D) A layer of acetic acid over the layer of water
When acetic acid and distilled water are mixed, they form a clear solution because acetic acid is completely miscible with water.
Hence, the correct option is B.
