Question

Stronger the ion-dipole interactions more ordered the water molecules become by organizing around the ion. This

decreases the entropy and leads to lower thermodynamic stability. Let’s think about the relationship between charge density of the ion and the ordering of water molecules around the ion

Arrange the following ions from weakest (1) to strongest (4) ordering effect on the water molecules.

1 = weakest, 4 = strongest
