A polar solute will dissolve in a polar solvent but not a nonpolar solvent. A nonpolar solvent will dissolve in a nonpolar solvent but not a polar solvent.

=a polar solvent dissolves a polar solute, and nonpolar solvents dissolve nonpolar solutes. likes dissolve likes=


As a rule polar solutes are dissolved in polar solvents and nonpolar solutes are dissolved in nonpolar solvents.


Yes, like dissolves like so a nonpolar solvent dissolves nonpolar solutes and polar solvents dissolve polar solutes



Polar ANYTHING dissolves in water (as long as it's soluable)! Water is polar! And Polar solvents dissolve polar (or ionic) solutes! That's why salt dissolves in water and oil doesn't. (Oil is nonpolar.) This is true the other way as well. Nonpolar solutes can dissolve in nonpolar solvents. That's why oil dissolves in benzene (C6H6) and salt doesn't!


Generally polar solutes are dissolved in polar solvents and nonpolar solutes are dissolved in nonpolar solvents.


Polar substances are only attracted to polar substances. When talking about solvents and solutes, only polar solutes can dissolve in polar solvents. It is the same for Nonpolar solvents as well. So, I hope this helps! :-)


Example: polar solutes are dissolved in polar solvents, nonpolar solutes are dissolved in nonpolar solvents; this is a general rule but not absolute.


The general rule is: polar solutes are dissolved in polar solvents, nonpolar solutes are dissolved by nonpolar solvents.


Generally polar solutes are dissolved in polar solvents and nonpolar solutes are dissolved in nonpolar solvents.


Polar solutes are soluble in polar solvents. Non-polar solutes are soluble in non-polar solvents. Polar solutes are miscible in non-polar solvents and vice verse.


This means that substances are more likely to dissolve in other substances with similar chemical properties. It is most often used when discussing polar and nonpolar solvents. For example, oil will not dissolve in water because oil is nonpolar and water is polar. Basically, a polar solvent will generally dissolve polar solutes and sometimes ionic solutes, and a nonpolar solvent will generally dissolve nonpolar solutes.


Polar solvents will dissolve ionic or polar solutes. This is due to the solubility rule that states that like dissolves like. So a polar solvent will not dissolve non-polar solutes.


No, sucrose is polar while hexane is non-polar. Polar solutes dissolve in polar solvents while non-polar solutes dissolve in non-polar solvents.


Soluble means able to be dissolved or able to be solved.For example, the soluble mystery questioned whether salt was soluble in water.Or, fat is soluble in oil but not in water, since polar solvents dissolve polar solutes while nonpolar solvents dissolve nonpolar solutes, but not vice-versa.


Generally polar solvents dissolve polar solutes and vice versa.


As a rule polar solutes are dissolved in polar solvents.


Polar solutes dissolve only in polar solvents while non-polar (organic) solutes only dissolve in non-polar solvents.


"Like dissolves like." Polar solutes dissolve in polar solvents, non-polar solutes dissolve in non-polar solvents.


Because it is non-polar itself.Remember the addage : Like Dissolves Like.Polar solvents dissolve polar solutes. And non-polar solvents dissolve non-polar solutes.


No it's false nonpolar compounds usually do not dissolve in polar solvents.


solubility is Polar solutes dissolve in polar solvents


For example polar solutes are dissolved in polar solvents and inverse.


"like dissolves like" means that polar solvents dissolve polar solutes, and that on-polar solvents dissolve non-polar solutes. for example: water (a polar solvent) dissolves salt NaCl (polar solute, forms Na+ Cl-)


It depends on the polarity of the solute and the solvent. If the solute is polar, then it will only dissolve in a polar solvent If the solute in nonpolar, then it will only dissolve in a nonpolar solvent
