Meniscus

Science / Chemistry / Meniscus: A phase boundary that is curved because of surface tension.

Meniscus Lens

Entertainment / Photography / Meniscus Lens: Is a simple lens consisting of a single piece off glass, thicker at the center than at the edges. It has one concave and one convex face. MORE

Miscible

Science / Chemistry / Miscible: Two liquids are considered 'miscible' or mixable if shaking them together results in a single liquid phase, with no meniscus visible between layers of liquid. MORE

Immiscible

Science / Chemistry / Immiscible: Two liquids are considered 'immiscible' or unmixable if shaking equal volumes of the liquids together results in a meniscus visible between two layers of liquid. If the liquids are completely immiscib MORE

Critical Point

Science / Chemistry / Critical Point: State at which two phases of a substance first become indistinguishable. For example, at pressures higher than 217.6 atm andtemperatures above 374°C, the meniscus between steam and liquid water will MORE

Partial Miscibility

Science / Chemistry / Partial Miscibility: Two liquids are considered partially miscible if shaking equal volumes of the liquids together results in a meniscus visible between two layers of liquid, but the volumes of the layers are not identic MORE
