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.
