    Benzene is a non-polar solvent. NaCl is a polar solute. Remember like dissolves like.

  • Chemistry -

    even the dipole moment moment and resultant force is not equal to zero thus why sodium chloride said polar compound while benze due to its low electronegativity are is said to be non-polar
