Concept Introduction:

Solution is composed of solute and solvent particles. The solubility depends upon the polar or non-polar nature of both solvent and solute. The compounds dissolve on the basis of the phenomenon of like dissolves like.

Explanation

The solute and solvent particles must have similarities to get dissolved. The term “like dissolves like” indicates that both solute and solvent can dissolve only if they are chemically similar. For example, methanol does not dissolve in nonpolar solvents. It prefers to dissolve in water because they both are polar.

The non identical molecules can form a solution if they have some chemical similarities...
