Ethanol is

a. soluble in water not soluble in hexane because the OH is polar.
b. soluble in hexane but not soluble in water because it is a hydrocarbon.
c. soluble in water and soluble in hexane because it has a nonpolar hydrocarbon part and a polar OH.

I think it is b, but really am not sure. I don't even know how I would know that unless I tested it. ? please help, thanks

    Is CO2 soluble in ethanol? I know that CO2 is nonpolar, so that means it's soluble in nonpolar solvents, but CO2 is soluble in H2O. H2O is polar. Also, if CO2 were obeying Henry's Law, would it be soluble in ethanol at a high pressure?
