Lesson: Solvation Glencoe • Chemistry • Matter & Change • Chemistry • The Molecular Nature of Matter and Change • Eighth Edition • Chemistry 13e • AP Edition • Introductory Chemistry Essentials • Sixth Edition • Glencoe Science • Chemistry • Matter and ChangeChemistry
In this lesson, we will learn how to describe the solvation mechanisms of molecules and ionic solids and the enthalpic and entropic changes involved.
Sample Question Videos
Why are and ions strongly solvated in water but not in hexane?
Fill in the blanks: Typically, as the temperature of the solvent increases, solids become soluble, and gases become soluble.
The dissolution of potassium chloride in water is a fast endothermic process. Bonds that are formed or broken during this process are shown in the figure.
Which of the bonds shown in the figure are the strongest bonds broken during this process?
Why is this process fast?
Why is this process endothermic?
