What type of molecules can dissolve in polar liquids?
What type of molecules can dissolve in nonpolar liquids?
What type of liquid is water? (polar or nonpolar) show your calculations.
like disolves in like.
Water is a bent molecule, so the O end is negative. I am not certain what calculations you are going to show. If the molecule were linear, it would be non polar, because the differences in electronegativity (the attraction of electrons by the O atoms) would cancel out.
