Answer:

Dissolution of NaCl in water

Explanation:

On addition to water the #Na^+# part of NaCl is attracted to the oxygen side of the water molecule, whereas the #Cl^-# side is attracted to the hydrogens' side of the water molecule.

This results the sodium chloride to split in water, and the NaCl dissolves into separate #Na^+# and #Cl^-# atoms. A hydration shell is built around them which prevents #Na^+# and #Cl^-# to form ionic bonds.

Finally it is confirmed that the salt (#NaCl#) is dissolved in water.
