Problem

Table salt and sugar dissolve in water for different reasons. Select the two forces responsible. 

(a) ion-dipole forces 

(b) London forces 

(c) electrostatic forces 

(d) dipole-dipole forces 

(e) hydrogen bonding

Solution

Salt dissolves in water via ion-dipole forces where ion comes from the salt and the dipole from the water
