Describe solvent properties of water.

Asked by Topperlearning User 29th September 2016, 4:57 PM
Answered by Expert

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.
