Solutions are homogeneous mixtures that result from the dissolving of a solute by a solvent.

Solutions and Intermolecular Forces

In the theory of "Likes" dissolving "Likes" the solvent can only completely dissolve the solute if they share similar polarity. 

Molarity & Solutions 

Concept #1: Solutions and Molarity. 

MOLARITY represents the moles of solute dissolved per liters of solution.

Concept #2: The Theory of “Likes” dissolve “Likes”. 

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

Example #1: Butane, a nonpolar organic compound, is most likely to dissolve in:

a. HCl

b. C6H5OH

c. C8H18

d. AlCl3

e. What the heck is butane?
