Butane isn't soluble in water, because it is nonpolar while water is a polar solvent.
Butane is insoluble in water because it is nonpolar.
nonpolar or polar
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.
Honey is Polar and nonpolar
Butane is a nonpolar molecule that has dispersion forces
Nonpolar. No element on its own can be polar.
It's not polar or nonpolar, but ionic.
There are many things that determine whether something is polar or nonpolar, such as the chemical structure of the molecule. In the case of water, it is polar.
Water is not "polar and nonpolar". It is polar only, and very much so at that.
Mostly nonpolar. Please understand that polar or nonpolar is a continuous range, not an either or.
Polar substances dissolve other polar substances, and nonpolar substances dissolve other nonpolar substances. A polar substance cannot dissolve a polar substance and a nonpolar substance cannot dissolve a polar substance.
because it is non polar and water is polar. polar dissolve with polar. nonpolar dissolve with nonpolar
gasoline is a nonpolar.
The molecule is nonpolar
