Can anyone explain to me about the solubility of alcohols and such. Ex why is ethane more soluble than methane, and why ethanol is more soluble than ethane.
I thought it had to do with the length of the chain/# of carbons in it but I think there is more. Polarity?
Like dissolves Like, but then since hydrocarbons have H's all around them, wouldnt they all be non-polar..
Alcohols too, because even though there is an oxygen, there still is a hydrogen around it.. so non-polar throughout?
Thanks in Advance.
