Iodine(I2)is a solid molecular compound at room temperature. Predict its solubility in liquid water(H2O)and in liquid cyclohexane(C6H12) at room temperature respectively and provide explain for your answer.

    I2 is held together by covalent bond; therefore, you would expect it to dissolve in a non-polar solvent (cyclohexane) and not be very soluble in a polar solvent (H2O).
