It is my understanding that if you put table salt (as an example of polar compound) in water, the Na+ and Cl- ions will freely move through the solution. They will make the solution conductive and will independently travel through it to carry electric current.
Now the thing is, if you dry the solution, how come every Na+ finds it's Cl- to recombine into NaCl? How come there are no lonely Na+ and Cl- pairs who couldn't find their mate in time, before the solution dried completely? Can someone give me a better understanding of how do polar solutions work?
