polar molecule are soluble in water. how does this activity demonstrate polarity of molecule that contain the -OH group.

our activity was to do an experiment mixing 2 diff liquids together to see if they dissolve and tell if its polar or nonpolar.

1. water and oil= polar

2. ethanol and oil= polar

3. water and ethanol= nonpolar.

  • I do not know! -

    If I'd known the answer, I would have helped you.

    If no one has answered, it's because no one who knows biology has been on Jiskha to see your question.

  • biology -

    okk thank you
