Compare the solubilities of iodine solid, [math] I_2 (s) [/math], and glucose, [math] C_6 H_12 O_6 (s) [/math], in water, based on their molecular polarities.
  • Award credit for the following response:
    • Iodine solid will not dissolve in water, while glucose will, since iodine is nonpolar and glucose is polar.
A molecule containing polar covalent bonds is always polar.
  1. True
  2. False
