Sodium stearate is a soap with the molecular formula C 18 H 35 O 2 Na . Draw its structure.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The structure of sodium stearate having formula C18H35O2Na is to be drawn.

Concept Introduction:

Soap molecules have polar and non-polar sides, which helps in the dissolution of non-polar molecules to non-polar side and polar molecules to polar sides.

Soap molecules contain an alkyl chain and COO Na+ where the alkyl chain is non-polar, and COO Na+ is, polar in nature.

General formula of soap is CH3(CH2)nCOO Na+.

Explanation of Solution

Soap molecules contain alkyl chains and COO Na+, where the alkyl chain is non-polar and COO Na+ is, polar in nature. The general formula of a soap molecule is, CH3(CH2)n
