What do the terms miscible and immiscible mean?

Miscible and immiscible are terms that refer to whether two liquids that come into contact will mix to form a single uniform solution. Two miscible liquids are able to mix together to form a uniform solution, while two immiscible liquids will separate into two layers. If the liquids are immiscible, the liquid with the lower density will stay on top and the liquid with the higher density will be on the bottom.
