salt water
« on: April 09, 2016, 17:50:31 pm »
table salt is nacl sodium chloride this mean it is a salt having equal amounts of each part making a neutral ph value..

chlorine is more electronegative than oxygen and sodium is less electongative than hydrogen...

this mean that in solution Na atoms will take a positive charge and chloride ions a negative charge...

this is a matrix of negative and positive ions where water molecules are there between

if we imagine how it looks on 1D there will be a sequence of negative and positive ions with water molecules between such that the molecules are oposing each other in the sequence... of course

if we go 3d we can imagine two rows of ions in oposite sequence with water between the rows and coluns of ions just to view what i´m seeig

now what hapens is that when we apply a voltage half the molecules are already in the right direction becauas of salt of course considering the 1dimension case.. than the other half of the molecules should try  alligned...

so in my point of view table salt work to kind of lower the covalent force that holds the molecule since the chlorine is possible to form a chloride acid and sodium is able to become a hydroxide.. maybe one at a time...
