Why fatty acids are soluble in alcohol but not in water?
Since the fatty acids contain long chain of hydrocarbon, they are non polar.
Lipids are non-polar molecules while water is polar molecule, so there is no way for water to attach to a lipid molecule. Instead, the non-polar lipids will bind to themselves, which is why oils and fats form droplets on the surface of water.
I got the reason for water but what about alcohols? Alcohols are also polar
