    Polar Covalent Bonds
  2. This unequal sharing of electrons and water's V-like shape make it a ________, meaning that its overall charge is unevenly distributed: the oxygen region of the molecule has a partial negative charge, and each hydrogen has a partial positive charge.
    Polar Molecule
  3. Collectively, the hydrogen bonds hold the substance together, a phenomenon called ______
  4. _____, the clinging of one substance to another, also plays a role.
  5. Related to cohesion is ____ ____, a measure of how difficult it is to stretch or break the surface of a liquid.
    Surface Tension
  6. Anything that moves has  ____ ____,  the energy of motion.
    Kinetic Energy
  7. ____ is a form of energy.
  8. _____ is a measure of heat intensity that represents the average kinetic energy of the molecules, regardless of volume.
  9. ____ __ ____ is the quantity of heat a liquid must absorb for 1 g of it to be converted  from the liquid to the gaseous state.
    Heat of vaporization
  10. The ______ ____ occurs because the "hottest" molecules, those with the greatest kinetic energy, are the most likely to leave as gas.
    Evaporative cooling
  11. A liquid tha is a completely homogeneous mixture of two or more substances is called a ____
  12. The dissolving agent of a solution is the ____
  13. An ____ ____ is one in which water is the solvent.
    Aqueous Solution
  14. The sphere of water molecules around each dissolved ion is called a _____ _____.
    Hydration Shell
  15. Any substance that has an affinity for water is said to be _____
  16. Some molecules in cells are so large that they do not dissolve. Instead, they remain suspended in the aqueous liquid of the cell. Such a mixture is an example of a ____, a stable suspension of fine particle in a liquid.
  17. Substances that do not have an affinity for water. Substances that are nonionic and nonpolar (or otherwise cannot form hydrogen bonds) actually seem to repel water; these substances are said to be _______
  18. the sum of the masses of all the atoms in a molecule.
    Molecular Mass
  19. ______ - the number of moles of solute per liter of solution-is the unit of concentration most often used by biologists for aqueous solutions.
  20. Occasionally, a hydrogen atom participating in a hydrogen bond between two water molecules shifts from one molecule to the other. When this happens, the hydrogen atom leaves its electron behind, and what is actually transferred is a _____ ___ a single proton with a charge of 1+.
    Hydrogen ion (H+)
  21. The water molecule that lost a proton is now _______ ___ which has a charge of 1-
    Hydroxide ion (H3O+)
  22. The proton binds to the other water molecule, making that molecule a ______ ___
    Hydronium ion (H3O+)
  23. An ____ is a substance that increases the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution.
  24. A substance that reduces the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution is called a _____.
  25. The _____ of a solution is defined as the negative log-arithm (base10) of the hydrogen ion concentration :
    pH = -log[H+]
    for neutral aqueous solution, [H+] is  10-7 M, giving us
    -log 10-7 =-(-7) =7
  26. A _____ is a substance that minimizes changes in the concentrations of H+ and OH- in a solution.
