You are given several grams of solid sodium chloride and water and asked to make a solution. Explain what happpens on a molecular level as sodium chloride dissolves in the water.


The solid (which is a network of ions) breaks apart, and the sodium ions are attraced to the O end of H2O molecules, and the Cl ions are attraced to the H ends.
