Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0These are the answer choices ! he K+ and I– ions. the K+ ion and the negative end of a water molecule. the I– ion and the negative end of a water molecule. the I– ion and the positive end of a water molecule.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the answer is A ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well the iodine will pull electrons away the Potassium ion, and it will dissociate away from the K+ because it can form more interactions with the hydrogens than it can with potassium which is a larger element

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so it's not A , so it's D ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0None of your answers are labeled and it is kind of vague as to which is A and which is B so can you just state the answer you chose and I will confirm it. Source: http://www.chemguide.co.uk/atoms/bonding/hbond.html

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I said this first A. the K+ and I– ions. Then I said D. the I– ion and the positive end of a water molecule.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay , thank you so much !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The first guess isn't right because K+ and I will favorably interact, because K+ is missing one electron and thus is rendered with a positive charge and I has an extra electron thus have a negative charge. The reason they can dissociate is because hydrogen bonding can stabilize the negatively charge iodine and thus it can just move away from the positively charged Potassium ion which can be stabilized by the oxygen present in the water molecules
