For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

I recent saw that a device is mentioned as IPX7 waterproof while checking its specification. Will it give protection only to the water or any liquid like oil, acid, paint, vinegar, petrol? What is the actual difference between the IPX7 waterproof and a normal water resistance. Can I submerge the device completely in the water?
I’m asking this since once my mobile has fallen in a muddy water and then it didn’t work. So I want to make sure that from what all are the elements which the IPX7 can give protection. I wonder what water proof rated device the scuba divers use under the sea.
