Question:

State the kind of intermolecular forces that would occur between the solute and solvent in aqueous sodium chloride (ionic).

Intermolecular forces

The solubility of a solute is dependent on the intermolecular forces acting on the solute and solvents. When a solute dissociates, or dissolves, in a solution, this indicates that the solute/solvent interaction is stronger than the solute-solute bond (or vice versa solvent-solvent bond). Once the solute dissociates, it will be surrounded by the solvent molecules.
