Question

# Is $$\displaystyle { CO }_{ 2 }$$ is more solution in water than $$\displaystyle { O }_{ 2 }$$?

A
Yes
B
No
C
Ambiguous
D
Data insufficient

Solution

## The correct option is D Yes$$CO_2$$ when dissolves in water it interacts with surrounding water  molecules to hydrate itself, i.e the electronegative oxygen atoms of $$CO_2$$ forms strong H-bond with H atoms of water molecules, This interaction is very strong to dissolve more and more $$CO_2$$ molecules. Thus, Carbon dioxide ($$CO_2$$) is more soluble in water than ($$O_2$$).Chemistry
