Which kind of polarity do water-soluble and fat-soluble substances respectively have?

1 year ago

Water-soluble substances are polar molecules, i.e., they have electrically charged areas. These molecules get the description “water-soluble” because they are soluble in water, a polar molecule too.

Fat-soluble substances are non-polar molecules, i.e., they are electrically neutral. They get the description “fat- soluble” because they dissolve other non-polar substances.
