    If aspirin is placed into an aqueous solution of a low pH (1.5) it is in its unionized form.What intermolecular forces would exist between the aspirin and the water at this low pH?
    Also at a high pH (8) the aspirin is in its ionized form. What intermolecular forces would exist between the water and the aspirin at this point?
    Thanks for any help!

    And your thoughts?

    What types of intermolecular forces are there?

    What do they act between?
