    Question 8. 

    Predict whether N2 will be more soluble in water (a polar substance) or gasoline (a nonpolar substance). 

    Answer

    N2 will be more soluble in gasoline because N2 is also nonpolar (like dissolves like)

     If ascorbic acid is soluble in water, would you expect it to be soluble in fat (a nonpolar substance)?

    Answer

    Since ascorbic acid is soluble in water, it is reasonable to assume that it is polar (or ionic) making it insoluble in fat.  

    Question 9. 

    What is the concentration in ppm if 0.0130 grams MgCl2 is dissolved in 1.20L of water?
