Most types of sugar readily dissolve into water to form a sugar water solution. When solid sugar is poured into water, the sugar molecules break up and form bonds with water molecules. There is a limit to how much sugar ... More » Science Chemistry Organic Chemistry

Sugar dissolves in water because both substances are polar substances. Water dissolves the majority of substances that are polar or ionic. The fact that sugar dissolves in water is unusual because most molecular compound... More » Science Chemistry Solutions & Mixtures

According to the Purdue University College of Science, sugar dissolves easily in water due to the fact that sucrose molecules are held together with weak intermolecular forces. The energy produced when these molecules bo... More »

The hydration sphere, a form of solvation shell, is a chemical structure that surrounds a solute in a solution in which the solvent is water. The individual water molecules adhere to the solute in the solution and form a... More »

With regard to osmosis, distilled water will always be hypotonic compared to an aqueous solution containing any amount of a solute. Because distilled water is pure and contains no dissolved substances, an aqueous solutio... More »

A simple crystal growing experiment that can be done at home is to bring 250 milliliters of distilled water to a slow boil and continue dissolving a few teaspoons of table salt, sugar or Epsom salts into the water until ... More » Science Chemistry Organic Chemistry

Water dissolves salt by dissociating the ions in salt from each other. Because water is a polar molecule, each of its ends holds a slight positive or negative electrical charge. These ends attract the positive and negati... More »
