Why should Ne be less soluble in water than O2? Please choose the answer that best explains the difference in solubility.
O A. The lower molar mass of Ne makes it easier to polarize the molecule to dissolve in polar water.
O B. The higher molar mass of O2 makes it easier to polarize the molecule to dissolve in polar water.
O C. The Ne is polar and, therefore, more soluble than O2 in water.
O D. The O2 is polar and, therefore, more soluble thanNe in water.
