  52. Explain why liquid water is more dense than solid water in 8 steps.
    • 1. In ice, the H2O molecules assume an ordered, open arrangement
    • 2. This arrangement optimizes the hydrogen bonding interactions between molecules
    • 3. Each Molecule forming hydrogen bonds to four other H2O molecules
    • 4. These hydrogen bonds create open cavities
    • 5. When ice melts the motions of the moelcules cause the structure to collapse
    • 6. Hydrogen bonding in the liquid is more random than in ice
    • 7. but it is strong enough to hold the molecules close together.
    • 8. So liquid water is more dense bc the given mass of water occupies a smaller volume than the same mass of ice
  53. Explain why hydrogen bonds are so strong in 5 steps
    • 1. The Hydrogen has no inner core of elections
    • 2. so the + side of the bonddipole has the concentrated charge of the partially exposed, nearly bare proton of the hydrogen nucleus
    • 3. This positive charge is attracted to the negative charge of an electronegative atom in a nearby atom
    • 4. Bc the electron poor hydrogen is so small, it can aproach an electronegative atom very closely
    • 5. THUS strong interaction
  54. What makes visocsity increase?
    Molecular weight, bc the longer the strands the more spagetti like they are
  55. What makes visocsity decrease?
    Higher temperatures that would break the spagetti bonds
  56. Explain how surface tension happens in 6 steps
    • 1. H2O molecules inside are attracted equally in all directions
    • 2. molecules on the surface only have their friends on the sides and below
    • 3. the resultant inward force pulls molecules from the surfaceinto the interior
    • 4. This reduces the surface area
    • 5. The makes the molecules at the surface pack closely together
    • 6. bc spheres have the smallest surface area for their volume, water droplets assume an almost spherical shape.
  57. How is surface tension measured?
    by the energy required to increase the surface area by overcoming the inward forces. Some unit amount by some special equation.
  58. Vapor Pressure Part 1 in 5 steps

    • 4. The easier the escape and the more that will join
    • 5. This will highten the vapor pressure
  59. Vapor Pressure part II
    • 1. Continuously molecules are being recaptured and escape again
    • 2. The more that escape, the higher amount that is caught
    • 3. Eventually, the prision slows this down and theres a strange balance of escapees and those that are forever caught
    • 4. This is a constant pressure of the vapor that is called................
    • 5. Dynamic equilibrium
  60. Normal Boiling Point (vs. what?) 4 steps
