Posted by anonymous on Tuesday, May 12, 2009 at 2:36am.

1. Why is benzoic acid more soluble in water than in octane?
My thought: Benzoic acid, a carboxylic is a polar compound and is more likely to be soluble in water as water is polar while octane is not.

2. Describe two properties that alcohols and carboxylic acids share?
My thought: 1. Both of them have hydrogen bonds. 2. They had high boiling points?

3. Which one is more soluble in water? Carboxylic acids or hydrocarbons?
My guess: Carboxylic acids?

Thank you!
