why electrovalent compounds dissolve in water but not in petrol
Asked by Shreya | 13th Mar, 2018, 10:05: AM
Organic solvents do not contain ions which can interact with ions of electrovalent compounds.
Petrol is organic solvent while water is inorganic solvent.
As we know like dissolves like, electrovalent compounds will dissolve in water but not in petrol.

- Why they are electro bond
- If i add Na and Cl artificially , what will happen then Will it form common salt
- Ionic compounds are solids with high melting point give reason
- Element X has 2 valence electrons ,element X has atomic number 7. A) Write equation to show how X and Y form ions. B) If B is a diatomic gas ,write the equation for the direct combination of X and Y to form a compound.
- what is electrovalence
- define ionisation potential
- What is ionisation? Please explain in easy language. Why does ionisation take place? How can covalent compounds be converted into ions as they are composed of molecules?
