## What is the solubility of sugar?

Water
Table sugar/Soluble in
Solubility is often expressed in grams of solute per 0.2 lb (100 g) of solvent, usually water. At 122°F (50°C), the solubility of sugar in water is approximately 130 g/sugar in 100 g water.

What happens when you dissolve salt and sugar in water?

The polar water molecules attract the oppositely charged polar areas of the sucrose molecules and pull them away, resulting in dissolving. Since the ions in salt and the molecules bin sugar are very different, their solubilities tend to be different.

Which is more soluble salt or sugar?

Solubility is the amount of solute that can dissolve in a given amount of solvent at a given temperature. In a solution, the solute is the substance that dissolves, and the solvent is the substance that does the dissolving. For example, sugar is much more soluble in water than is salt.

### What does this tell you about the solubility of sugar in water?

Sugar dissolves in water because energy is given off when the slightly polar sucrose molecules form intermolecular bonds with the polar water molecules. When one of these solids dissolves in water, the ions that form the solid are released into solution, where they become associated with the polar solvent molecules.

Why do you think the salt dissolved in water?

When salt is mixed with water, the salt dissolves because the covalent bonds of water are stronger than the ionic bonds in the salt molecules. Water molecules pull the sodium and chloride ions apart, breaking the ionic bond that held them together.

Why is sugar so soluble?

Sugar dissolves in water because energy is given off when the slightly polar sucrose molecules form intermolecular bonds with the polar water molecules. The weak bonds that form between the solute and the solvent compensate for the energy needed to disrupt the structure of both the pure solute and the solvent.
