It's not polar or nonpolar, but ionic.

salt water is polar because pf something with its ions !

Salt + Vegetable oil . The salt is the ionic solid and the vegetable oil is the nonpolar liquid

Salt and water are both polar while oil is nonpolar.

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!

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.

Nonpolar. No element on its own can be polar.

Honey is Polar and nonpolar

No, salt is not soluble in acetone. It is a polar compound and acetone is a nonpolar compound, so it will not dissolve in it.

The salt will not dissolve in the oil because oil is nonpolar and salt is polar, and like dissolves like.

it is a salt and therefore ionic is is however slightly soluble in polar solutions

The compound NH4CH3CO2 is considered a type of polar compound. This is because it is a type of water-soluble salt.

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.

Potassium permanganate is a polar compound. This is a salt that has an ionic formula and being polar refers to the type of molecules that are in a compound.

Mostly nonpolar. Please understand that polar or nonpolar is a continuous range, not an either or.

It means that polar substances dissolve other polar substances, and nonpolar substances dissolve other nonpolar substances. (Also, polar substances, such as water, can also dissolve some ionic substances, such as salt, NaCl.)

gasoline is a nonpolar.

The molecule is nonpolar

because it is non polar and water is polar. polar dissolve with polar. nonpolar dissolve with nonpolar

polarity... polar is the mid- range; nonpolar is the least polar.

Copper sulfate is neither polar nor nonpolar. It is ionic.

The heads of a phospholipid is polar and the long tails are nonpolar

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.

polar? It is polar 4sure.
