Answer the following questions at your best: Chapter 11 - Water and solutions 12345678910- How is a solution different from other mixtures? Explain why some ionic compounds are soluble while others are insoluble in water. Explain why adding salt to water increases the boiling point. Explain why water has a greater density at 4°C than at 0°C. What is hard water? How is it softened?

Chapter 11: Water and Solutions
1. How is a solution different from other mixtures?
A solution is a homogenous type of mixture where ions or molecules of two or more
substances become dissolved together. Unlike other mixtures, the two or more substances are
uniformly combined.
2. Explain why some ionic compounds are soluble while others are insoluble in water.
The solubility of an ionic compound in water is determined by the relationship between the
force of hydration and the ion-polar molecule force. When the force of hydration has
occupied most of the polar water molecules, creating a saturation, solubility becomes
difficult because of the less available water molecules that lead to a decreased attraction to
the surface of the solid.
3. Explain why adding salt to water increases the boiling point.
The boiling point of water increases when salt is added to it because, at the same
temperature, the vapor pressure of a solutio...
