Out of H2 and NH3, which is more soluble in water and why ?

Asked by anirbanbag81 14th October 2017, 10:00 PM

Ammonia is easily soluble in water while, hydrogen is insoluble in water.
The solubility of ammonia is due to lone pairs present on nitrogen of ammonia and oxygen of water.
Also, the presence of hydrogen in both ammonia and water.
These two factors increase the hydrogen bonding in between water molecules and ammonia molecules.
