13.9 Polymers and Plastics
Drinking water causes dehydration because it draws water out of body tissues.
Pi is able to survive by rigging a solar still.
He becomes dehydrated from lack of water in the first three days of his situation.
The concepts of solute and solvent are not useful in some cases.
A mixture of water to itself is an example.
seawater shouldn't be used as drinking water.
The majority component in a solution is usually the one that is identified as the solvent.
Water is the primary solvent in the water.
Intermolecular forces were discussed in Chapter 12.
The solvent is water.
The reason that seawater draws water to itself is related to nature's tendency toward mixing, which we discuss in more detail later in this chapter and in Chapter 19.
If the mixing process is unfavorable, substances combine into uniform mixtures and do not separate into pure substances.
A uniform concentration of the final solution is achieved by the tendency toward mixing.
The cells of the digestive tract are next to the cells of the intestine.
These cells have largely fluid interiors.
The fluids in the cells are less ionized than the fluids in the cells.
A solution of uniform concentration can be produced when the barrier that separates water and salt is removed.
A barrier separates water and salt.
A single solution of uniform concentration can be produced when the barrier is removed.
