In which type of solvent do non-polar solutes dissolve?

Non-polar solvents

What happens if the forces of attraction between solute molecules (A-A) are greater than the forces between solvent molecules (B-B)?

The solvent will not be able to break the binding forces of the solute molecules.

Which type of forces hold the sodium chloride crystal together?

Electrovalent forces

In which type of solvent do non-electrolytes typically dissolve?

Polar solvents

What happens if B-B > A-B, according to the text?

The solvent molecules will form aggregations excluding the solute.

Which step involves creating a hole in the solvent just large enough to accept the solute molecule?

Step 2: Creation of a hole in the solvent

Which type of forces are stronger if A-B > A-A or B-B?

A-B forces

'Steps of Solubility' mentioned in the text involve which of the following first?

'The removal of a molecule from the solute phase'

In which scenario will the solute disperse and form a solution?

A-B > A-A

If the solvent molecules are attracted to each other and form aggregations from which the solute is excluded, what does it signify?

B-B > A-B

What type of solvent would benzene be classified as based on its inability to penetrate closely bound water aggregates?

Non-polar solvent

Which forces are holding the sodium chloride crystal together, making it insoluble in benzene?

A-A forces

What is the first step in the process of solubility described in the text?

Removal of a molecule from the solute phase

What happens if B-B exceeds A-B in terms of their affinities?

The solvent molecules form aggregations excluding the solute.

If A-A > B-B, what happens to the solute in the solvent?

It remains insoluble.

Based on the text, what characteristic defines non-polar solvents?

They can form aggregations excluding certain solutes.

When A-B exceeds A-A and B-B, what happens to the solute?

It disperses and forms a solution.

Which step in the process of solubility deals with placing the solute molecule in a hole in the solvent?

Third step

Test your knowledge on electrolytes, weak acids, weak bases, strong electrolytes, and non-electrolytes. Understand the differences between substances that ionize completely and partially, and those that dissolve as molecules in solutions.
