What if water could dissolve nonpolar molecules? How would this affect the functioning of our bodies?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret the affect on functioning of body if water dissolves non polar molecule.

Concept Introduction:

Electrostatic attraction appears between two different molecule depends on the charge present in each molecule.

Molecule having different atom bonded to each other and having different electronegativity according to their arrangement in periodic table and thus results in charge separation which results in creating polarity in the molecule.

Explanation

Water is a polar molecule due to the separation of charges, results by the presence of electronegative atom oxygen compared to hydrogen. Hydrogen contains partial positive charge while oxygen contains partial negative charge. Thus, only polar molecules will be able to get dissolved in water due to dipole-dipole interaction...
