Describe solvent properties of water.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 29th Sep, 2016, 04:57: PM
Water is a universal solvent and can dissolve many substances as compared to other solvents because of its polar covalent nature.
Water has a high dielectric constant of 80.10 at 20°C. Because of this large value of the dielectric constant, water can dissolve a large number of ionic compounds.
