What is the difference between miscible and immiscible fluids?

    Miscible fluids are fluids that can mix and create what is called an homogeneous mixture. For example air and steam can fully mix.

    Immiscible fluids like oil and water cannot mix into each other. Particles of one fluid would keep being separated from the other fluid's particles. Oil and water would form an heterogeneous mixture that are typically called suspensions.
