Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes  benzene would not take part in hydrogen bonding  that might be it  the molecule is hexagonal and very stable. sorry i can't be of more help

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why do you say stable? and what does stability have anything to do with hbonding?

cwrw238

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1benzene does not react with water at room temperature and only reacts with strong reagents at elevated temperatures the hexagonal arrangement makes for strong bonding.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Solubility of ionic compounds in water Main article: Solubility chart Main article: Solubility table Some ionic compounds (salts) dissolve in water, which arises because of the attraction between positive and negative charges (see: solvation). For example, the salt's positive ions (e.g. Ag+) attract the partially negative oxygens in H2O. Likewise, the salt's negative ions (e.g. Cl−) attract the partially positive hydrogens in H2O. Note: oxygen is partially negative because it is more electronegative than hydrogen, and viceversa (see: chemical polarity). AgCl(s) Ag+(aq) + Cl−(aq) However, there is a limit to how much salt can be dissolved in a given volume of water. This amount is given by the solubility product, Ksp. This value depends on the type of salt (AgCl vs. NaCl, for example), temperature, and the common ion effect. One can calculate the amount of AgCl that will dissolve in 1 liter of water, some algebra is required. Ksp = [Ag+] × [Cl−] (definition of solubility product) Ksp = 1.8 × 10−10 (from a table of solubility products) [Ag+] = [Cl−], in the absence of other silver or chloride salts, [Ag+]2 = 1.8 × 10−10 [Ag+] = 1.34 × 10−5 The result: 1 liter of water can dissolve 1.34 × 10−5 moles of AgCl(s) at room temperature. Compared with other types of salts, AgCl is poorly soluble in water. In contrast, table salt (NaCl) has a higher Ksp and is, therefore, more soluble. Soluble Insoluble Group I and NH4+ compounds Carbonates (Except Group I, NH4+ and uranyl compounds) Nitrates Sulfites (Except Group I and NH4+ compounds) Acetates (Ethanoates) (Except Ag+ compounds) Phosphates (Except Group I and NH4+ compounds) Chlorides (Chlorates and Perchlorates), bromides and iodides (Except Ag+, Pb2+, Cu+ and Hg22+) Hydroxides and oxides (Except Group I, NH4+, Ba2+, Sr2+ and Tl+) Sulfates (Except Ag+, Pb2+, Ba2+, Sr2+ and Ca2+) Sulfides (Except Group I, Group II and NH4+ compounds) Hydroxides (Only with (aq) Ba2+, Li+, Na+, K+, Rb+, Cs+, Fr+ )

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but zbay said c6h6 does not dissolve because it's metal + nonmetal but NaCl is metal + nonmetal too if it's nonmetal + nonmetal HCl is nonmetal + nonmetal too

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what's the reason c6h6 does not dissolve?

zbay

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i ment non metal non metal or molecular, and hcl is a strong acid making very soluble

NotTim

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, for one, It's got tons of hydrogen bonding...

zbay

zbay

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0an IMF is a intramolecular force and is responsible for how molecules behave around each other

NotTim

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1isn't that important for solubility, as we are looking for the chemicals' ability to be dissolved in water. Whatever affects the forces must affect the solubility too right?

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so how does IMF affect ths situation?

zbay
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0IMF has nothing to do with solubility, we are just trying to figure out if something will disolve here. So by a just remember that if the compound is molecular it doesn't disolve.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look i'm not trying to debate this all night the answer to the questoin is e in my opinion. There are other exeptions to these rules but the majority of the time just find the molecular compound and assume it wont be soluble. if you want to read about all the exeptions google solubilty rules

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i didnt read all answers but you can take guidence in this rule: similar is soluble in similar by which i mean POLARITY!!! polar molecules will dissolve in water while non polar in non polar solutes like benzene, toluene, THF(tetra hydro furane)...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i mean "like dissolves like" and btw..is nacl polar? isnt it ionic???

Kryten
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that means that salts like NaCl you mentioned will naturally be dissolved in water, other polar molecules like C2H5OH which have small organic groups and polar group will also dissolve in water cause in their case polarity of polar group (in this case OH) is significant, but for example fats and oils which are consisted of large organic chains will not dissolve in water (you can see that in soup where oil or fat floats on soup) but those will dissolve in nonpolar liquids (molecules) like toluene, benzene etc. because they are not polar...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for me, how to know the solubility are based on the BONDS. ionic compounds = soluble. covalent compounds = insoluble except in certain compounds, ex. HCl)
