    Reaction: NaCl(solid) + H2O -> Na+(aqueous) + Cl-(aqueous) + H2O Explanation: On addition to water the Na+ section of NaCl is attracted to the oxygen side of the water molecules, while the Cl- side is attracted to the hydrogens' side of the water molecule. Color scheme: Red(Oxygen) Blue(Hydrogen) This causes the sodium chloride to split in water, and the NaCl dissolves into separate Na+ and Cl- atoms. A hydration shell is formed around them which prevents Na+ and Cl- to form ionic bonds. Figure: Hydration shell being formed. Thus we say the salt is dissolved.
