Caption: Sodium ion dissolving. Animation showing a sodium ion (Na+, purple) dissolving in water. The atoms are shown colour-coded. The sodium ion is from a crystal of sodium chloride (NaCl, table salt). Water molecules (oxygen, red; hydrogen white) are attracted to and have formed a solvation complex with this sodium ion. The water molecules are polar, with the oxygen atoms (negative) attracted to the sodium ions (positive). For the corresponding animation for the chloride ion, see clip K005/6403. For the sodium chloride dissolving, see clip K005/6400.
