Problem: Choose the pair of substances that are most likely to form a homogeneous solution.?a. CCl4 and SCl2 b. NF3 and SO2 c. CO and C6H6 d. NH2CH3 and CH4 e. None of these pairs will form a homogeneous solution.

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine which among the given pair of substances is most likely to form a homogenous solution.


Homogenous solution 

mixed together as evenly as possible
the components of the solution are indistinguishable


We’re going to use the theory “likes” dissolving “likes”  which states that the solvent can only completely dissolve the solute if they share similar polarity

Therefore, a pure solvent with similar polarity can successfully dissolve a solute to create a solution.
