|dw:1438983518275:dw| the first thing you must understand is that water is a polar molecule, and it's bent in its structure.

  • Photon336
water is polar because the oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen. now the property is called hydrogen bonding which has two characteristics: 1. a hydrogen must be covalently bonded to either an Oxygen, a Nitrogen, of Fluorine to act as a hydrogen bond donor. 2. the molecule must have a lone pair of electrons that can act as an hydrogen bond acceptor.

In the figure above you can see that there are two water molecules. YOU can see two bonds; two between the lone pair of electrons on the oxygen and the hydrogen on the adjacent molecule.

So would it be C?
Photon336
  • Photon336
so, the bonds in water are covalent not IONIC so the answer choices that say ionic bonds are WRONG. ionic bond = electrostatic attraction, where electrons are transferred from a metal to a non metal.

In the last figure I drew. can you tell me what's going on?

I can't really tell and I suck at this stuff. C doesn't have anything to do with ionic. C is the hydrogen bonds between the H atoms.

|dw:1438984071231:dw| if the bonds were between hydrogen atoms water molecules would look like this. above. the bond has to be between the oxygen and the hydrogen,

Okayy so then A?

  • Photon336
to me that seems like the answer that makes the most sense

Okay thank you so muchh

Polar means that one atom is more electronegative than the other.

and you can see that water has a high boiling point because all the energy is put in to break those bonds between water molecules.
