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.
Intermolecular Forces (IMF) are the attractive forces between 2 molecules.
▪ strongest IMF
▪ deals with the attraction between an ion and a polar compound.
• Hydrogen Bonding

B. water and methylene chloride
C. hexanes and methylene chloride
D. methanol and hexanes
E. ethanol and water
F. acetone and toluene
