HCl is a covalent compound but how it is dissolved in water?

Asked by madhupur.suraj 2nd December 2017, 3:11 PM

HCl is a polar covalent compound, because of electronegativity difference between Cl(3.5) and hydrogen (2).
When we dissolve HCl to a polar solvent like water it gets dissolve this happens because OH- in the water approaches to hydrogen (H-Cl ) of HCl for hydrogen bonding as it has already partial positive charge. Hence in this way, the bond between HCl breaks and they formed ions in the polar solvent like water.
