How are the formation of aqueous solutions of sodium chloride and sucrose similar?

  • chemistry -

    Aqueous solution means that the solvent is water which is polar. Remember that "like dissolves like". Only polar solutes can dissolve in polar solvents. Both solutes, sodium chloride and sucrose, are polar solutes in an aqueous solution. The positive end of the solute is attracted to the negative end of the polar solvent and the negative end of the solute is attracted to the positive end of the polar solvent, breaking the lattice of the sodium chloride and sucrose.
