Hi,

Question :
Structure of an acetic acid molecule when it is dissolved in
a) ether
b) 5% aq. NaOH

Is this based on beign polar and non polar?
how would the structure look like? do i have to look at the pH as well?

Hello,
The electrochemistry basics needs to be clear to solve this concept.
The polar solvent dissolves in polar , i.e. like dissolves like.
As acetic acid and ether are polar so they are polar.
You no need to go through the structure.
