State the kind of intermolecular forces that would occur between the solute and solvent in aqueous sodium chloride (ionic).
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.
Answer and Explanation: 1
When sodium chloride dissociates in an aqueous solution, the sodium ion and the chloride ion become surrounded by water molecules due to the net...

Hydrogen bonds are a critical part of many chemical processes, and they help determine the properties of things necessary for life, such as water and protein. Explore hydrogen bonds, as well as dipole-dipole forces, ion-dipole forces, strong intermolecular forces, and intramolecular forces. Understand the effects that intermolecular forces have on certain molecules' properties.
