Solubility:

The general rule that explains solubilitty on the basis of polarity of molecules is that " like dissolves like." In other words, polar compounds dissolve in polar solvents and non polar compounds dissolve in non polar solvents. This is generally true because a polar olvent such as water has partial charges that can interact with the partial charges on a polar compound. The negative poles f the solvent molecules surround the positive pole of the polar solute, and the positive [poles of the solvent molecules surround the negative pole of the polar solute. Clustering of the solvent molecules around the solute molecules seperates solute molecules from each other, which is what makes them soluble. The interaction betwen a solvent and a molecule or an ion that is dissolved in that solvent is called solvation.
