Problem: Which of the following compounds should be soluble in CCl4?A) NaClB) H2OC) NaOHD) Br2

FREE Expert Solution

For this problem, we are being asked to determine which compound is soluble in CCl4

Recall that in solutions, like dissolves like where a polar compound is soluble at polar solvents while non-polar compounds are soluble at non-polar solvent

In this case, we have to draw and determine the polarity of CCl4 as well as the given compounds

For this problem, we need to do the following steps:

Step 1: Determine the central atom in the molecule.

Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.

Step 3: Draw the Lewis structure for the molecule.

Step 4: Determine the polarity 

Step 5. Analyze the choices
