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.

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

water is polar (it has a positive and negative end). Most oils are NONpolar

No, it is not. Water is a polar substance. CCl4 is nonpolar. Nonpolar things only dissolve nonpolar things, and polar things only dissolve polar things.

It is polar. That is why water sticks to your skin, unlike wax, a nonpolar substance.

Polar molecules Can be dissolved by water because water is also polar. Polar molecules dissolve other polar molecules and nonpolar molecules are dissolved by other nonpolar molecules.

Water is polar because its electrons are shared unequally.

I believe it is polar- it is soluble in water

Water molecule is polar covalent.

Iodine is not soluble in water because iodine is nonpolar and water is polar. According to the "Like dissolve like" expression, nonpolar substances are soluble with nonpolar substances and polar substances are soluble with polar substances, but nonpolar substances are not soluble with polar substances.

Ethanol contains both polar and nonpolar parts so it can combine with pretty much anything. Like Water(polar) or Vegetable oil(nonpolar)

no... water is a polar compound

i believe that it is polar as it mixes with water well

splenda is polar because it is water soluble.

No. Water has polar molecules so only polar molecules will dissolve in water. Nonpolar molecules will only dissolve in nonpolar solvents. For example, lipids will dissolve in ethanol.

Dihydrogen monoxide (H2O or Water) is not an example of a nonpolar molecule. It is a polar molecule.

Because water is polar, so when a when a polar solute is put in it will dissolve. Like dissolves like. Polar dissolves polar. Likewise, nonpolar dissoves nonpolar.

both, the water is polar and the chemicals are non polar

nonpolar. The fat molecules in peanut butter are nonpolar, that is why peanut butter doesn't evenly mix with water, a polar substance.

No, water is polar and in general like dissolves like so non polar solutions are miscible with other nonpolar solution and water is miscible with other polar solutions.

Polar molecules dissolve in water, but nonpolar molecules do not dissolve in water. There is a saying that like dissolves like. Water dissolve polar substances like itself, but not nonpolar molecules which are unlike water. An example of a nonpolar substance in water is a mixture of water and vegetable oil, which is nonpolar. If left to sit, the oil will form a layer on top of the water's surface because it cannot dissolve in the water.

Water contains polar covalent bonds.

I will assume Hsub2O is H2O [water] Water is a polar molecule.

No, because water is polar and CH20 is nonpolar. Polar and nonpolar substances don't mix.
