Chemistry of Life: Bonding and Properties of Water
The purpose of this lab is to see how the properties of water and the bonding of
My hypothesis for the first activity is below in question 3.
Activity 2 I think that the
pepper will sink to the bottom.
Is sodium chloride an ionic compound or a covalent compound? What
happens to the atoms in NaCl when the compound is dissolved in
Is sucrose, C
, an ionic or a covalent compound? What happens
to the sucrose molecules when this solute is dissolved in water?
Make a prediction about the solubility of each solute in each solvent
examined in Activity 1. You may find it useful to look up the chemical
structure of each solute and determine the extent of its polarity
Sodium chloride (NaCl)
