Establish the solubility rules to determine which compound will be soluble and not.

Step 1. Recall the solubility rules:

  • Ionic compounds are usually composed of a nonmetal and a metal. 
  • On the other hand, molecular compounds are composed of exclusively non-metals
  • Note that molecular compounds cannot be analyzed as soluble or insoluble using the solubility rules.
