你不能把油和水混合 - You can't mix oil with water - explain 把 bǎ usage

Hi everyone,
I stumbled upon this example sentence:
你不能油和水混合.
nǐ bù néng bǎ yóu hé shuǐ hùnhé.
You can't mix oil with water.
Can someone explain this construction to me? What's the purpose of 把 in this sentence? 
Would it still be a correct sentence if i just dropped 把?

Thanks in advance :)

you just need to remember that 把 could emphasize the main topic and put the object before the verb.

我喝完了酒。--------->      我(酒)喝完了 ----------->  我把酒喝完了。

Here are 4 rules to learn 把:
