Describe the process by which KBr dissolves in H2O.
The electrostatic interactions between the K+ and Br- ions are gradually replaced by electrostatic interactions between the ions and H2O. Both ions become surrounded by a
solvation shell of H2O molecules that serves to shield the ions from each other. H2O molecules in the solvation shell around K+ ions are oriented so that the partial ______
charge of the 0 atom of H2O interacts with the---______--charget, of the ion. H2O molecules in the solvation shell around Br- ions are oriented so the partial _____
charges of their H atoms interact with the--Select--charge .1 of the ion.
