Problem: Water is a polar molecule, meaning it carries partial charges (𝛿+ or 𝛿-) on opposite sides of the molecule. For two formula units of NaCl. drag the sodium ions and chloride ions to where they would most likely appear based on the grouping of the water molecules in the are provided. Not that red spheres represent O atoms and white spheres represent H atoms.
