Sorry about that. I don't know why it did that? I will try to recap the two or three sentences I read. The oxygen molecules dissolve in H2O in the spaces between the molecules of H2O. Liquid water consists of a network of hydrogen bonded water molecules. The oxygen, in a sense, is hiding in the spaces between, much like in a cage. The space is large enough that the oxygen fits into the cage like structure. I hope this helps.

Why can you dissolve oxygen in water?

do you think you could tell me test is tomorrow and i don't have much time and i kind of want to get a good night's rest...but sorrry, but thanks, if you know

All you need to do is to read the first two or three sentences in the post. It can tell you much faster than I can.

thanks much!
