The bonds of ionic compounds tend to dissociate into their positive and negative ions as their molecules are hydrolyzed by the water. The bonds of covalent compounds remain… intact even in those that dissolve readily in water, such as sugar alcohol and others.
Answer . Water is a very good solvent. When an ionic compound is dissolved in water, it breaks into its contituent radical ions. say for example if you dissolve NaCl in wat…er, then it decomposes into Na + & Cl - another example, when (Na) 2 SO 4 is dissolevd in water it dissolves into two Na + ion and one SO 4 - ion.
it breaks up into individual crystals.
its so simple when ionic compounds are dissolved in water they get ionized and convert into ions, like in case of NaCl when it is dissolved in water it ionize into sodium Na i…on and chloride cl- ion.
the molecules that are not soluble in water. ;)
-they are broken up into their respective ions... for example: when table salt (NaCl) is disolved, it is broken up into Na+ and Cl- -they are pulled apart by water molecules
The bonds between the atoms dont break when covalent compounds are dissolved. However there are not many covalent compounds that generally dissolve in water.
Yes, there are many covalent compounds that dissolve in water including bromine and sulfuric acid.
It splits into two ions: posive Na + and negative Cl -
When an ionic compound is dissolved in water, it is broken up into its positive and its negative ions. We shall use Table Salt for our example. It has the formula NaCl, which …stands for Sodium Chloride. It becomes a Sodium ion and a Chlorine ion. Water has the formula H2O. That is two atoms of Hydrogen and one of Oxygen. The Hydrogen atoms are on one side. The Chlorine ion becomes surrounded by Hydrogen atoms and the Sodium atom becomes surrounded by Oxygen atoms. Covalent compounds consisting of long chains of carbon atoms do not dissolve in water. They do not have anything to attract either the Oxygen atoms or the Hydrogen atoms. By putting an acid or alcohol group on the end of a covalent compound, it will make the compound dissolve in water. Part of the compound will be attracted to the Oxygen atoms in the water and the other part to the Hydrogen atoms. (When the chains get 17 atoms long and longer something else happens, but we will not get into that.)
The water molecules surround the solute (stuff being dissolved) and separate the particles.
The cations and anions from the ionic compound separate to greater average distances from one another than prevailed in the compound before it was dissolved.
Crystallization occurs when elements and compounds that are dissolved in water leave a solution.
It is a solution, which is a mixture of two or more substances which, when dissolved, cannot be seperated by mechanical means.
The compound will dissolve forming a solution of its corresponding positive and negative ions. for example salt, NaCl when dissolved in water forms a solution of Na + and Cl …- ions.
If that's oxygen and salt, then your answer is seawater.
