When sodium chloride, NaCl, is added to water, it forms a solution.

Rank the steps involved in the dissolution of salt in water from first step to last step. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them.

a.) NaCl crystal is added to water

b.) NaCl solution

c.) The Na ions are attracted to the water molecules

d.) The Cl ions are attracted to the water molecules
