As it is known that like dissolves like. So, water being a polar compound is able to dissolve only polar compounds.
Hence, a compound that is ionic or polar in nature will readily dissolve in water. Whereas non-polar compounds will be insoluble in water.
As is a non-polar compound. Hence, it is insoluble in water.
On the other hand, is a polar compound due to difference in electronegativity of chlorine and carbon atom there will be development of partial charges. Hence, there will be dipole-dipole forces existing between them.
Whereas is an ionic compound and it will readily dissociate into ions when dissolved in water. Also, there will be ion-dipole interactions between sodium and nitrate ions.
Hence, will readily dissolve in water.
Thus, we can conclude that the compounds correctly arranged in order of increasing solubility in water are < < .
The method generally involves heating a mixture of epsomite and halite to form clusters of lower hydrated magnesium sulfate crystals and subsequently applying slight pressure to the clusters so that they collapse to yield fine, less hydrated magnesium sulfate crystals which can then be easily separated from the ...
