Choose the member of each set that has the higher solubility
in water. Briefly, explain your answer.
b) Carbon dioxide or silicon dioxide
To begin to answer this question we need to determine the most
important intermolecular attractive force for both of these compounds. To assign
the IMAF we need to know if the compound is polar or nonpolar.
So first determine the polarity of carbon dioxide and silicon
When you have your answer go to the next
