When water molecules are attracted to other water molecules, this is called COHESION. This is because the oxygen end of water has a negative charge and the hydrogen end has a positive charge. The hydrogens of one water molecule are attracted to the oxygen from the other water molecules. This is what causes Cohesion. :)
Adjacent water molecules are connected by the electrical attraction between the hydrogen of one water molecule. It also has an electrical attraction with the oxygen of another molecule.
Is an example of hydrogen bonding.
Water molecules are associated by hydrogen bonds.
Adjacent water molecules are connected by the electrical attraction between the oxygen of one water molecule and the hydrogen of another water molecule. This type of bonding is called hydrogen bonding.
yes because the hydrogen is called Van Plon & water molecules are positive towards that.
It occurs due to high eletro negativity between two atoms
the attraction to the positive end of a water molecule
A hydrogen bond between the oxygen of one water molecule and the hydrogen of another water molecule.
This attraction is called hydrogen bond, what causes higher boyling point in relation to compounds without such bonds
· Hydrogen bonds · Weak bonds that form due to the polarity of the water molecule · Cohesion · Attraction of molecules to the same substance · Adhesion · Attraction of molecules to different substances
pure water evaporates faster because it has a higher vapour pressure than salt water. Raoult's Law. The attraction between salt ions and water is stronger than that of water molecules. It therefore takes more energy to separate a water molecule from salt, that a water molecule from another water molecule.
NO, desiccant is not another name for a water molecule.
The intermolecular forces between water molecules are hydrogen bonds, a special (and much stronger) version of dipole-dipole bonds.
yes it does because the more the cohesion energy density of both molecules is close the more ability they have to fuse together
it is because of the cohesive attraction.... - cohesive attraction is the intermolecular attraction between ' like molecules ' .
hydrogen bonding is a very strong intermolecular attraction from one water molecule to another, until this bond is broken the water stays in liquid form.
They don't attract, in fact they repel, which is why oil and water separate when left for a period of time.
Water is a simple triatomic molecule. Each O-H covalent bond in the water molecule is polar. Because of its greater electronegativity, the oxygen atom attracts the electron pair of the covalent O-H bond and acquires a partial negative charge. The hydrogen atoms, being less electronegative than the oxygen, acquire a partial positive charge. The atoms of the water molecule are joined at a 105 angle. As a result, the partial charges on the individual atoms do not cancel one another and the molecule is polar. Because water molecules are polar, they attract one another. The hydrogen of one molecule is attracted to the oxygen of another molecule. This attraction is termed hydrogen bonding and it is stronger than other polar attractions.
The slightly negative charge on the oxygen atom of one water molecule forms a weak electrostatic attraction between the slightly positive charge on a hydrogen atom of another water molecule. This is called a hydrogen bond. The hydrogen bonding between the water molecules is why water is highly cohesive.
