Today in Chemistry we went over chapter 15.1 discussing Water as well as Hydrogen Bonding. Hydrogen bonding occurs when the positive region of water molecules attracts a negative region of another molecule. Surface tension is the inward force, or pull, that tends to minimize the surface area of a liquid. All liquids have have a surface tension, but water’s surface tension is higher than most. Molar mass of water is 18.0 g/mol, but it has a boiling point of 100 degrees Celsius. Hydrogen bonding gives high surface tension, low vapor pressure and high boiling point….
