Full Answer

Sucrose is quite soluble in water and methanol. However, its solubility in ethanol is very slight, while it is insoluble in ethyl ether. Sucrose and water both are covalently bonded compounds. This is the reason why sugar dissolves in water

Table sugar has the molecular weight of 342.29648 grams per mole, and its chemical formula is C12H22O11. Sugar's density is 1.5805 grams per cubic centimeter.
