Pick an appropriate solvent from the table below to dissolve each of the following.

Common Laboratory Solvents
Common Polar SolventsCommon Nonpolar Solvents
Water (H2O)

Hexane (C6H14)

Acetone (CH3COCH3)

Diethyl ether

Methanol (CH3OH)

Toluene (C7H8)

Ethanol (CH3CH2OH)

Carbon tetrachloride

* Diethyl ether has a small dipole moment and can be considered intermediate between polar and nonpolar.

State the kind of intermolecular forces that would occur between the solute and solvent.
a. motor oil (nonpolar)
b. ethanol (polar, contains an OH group)
c. lard (nonpolar)
d. potassium chloride (ionic)
