Water molecules are polar Polar covalent bonds… oxygen pulling e- away from both hydrogen atoms Hydrogen has positive charge Oxygen has negative charge
Background image of page 2
Water molecules are polar The polarity of water molecules allows them to form hydrogen bonds with each other Responsible for the emergent properties of water Hydrogen bonds + H H + + δ δ δ δ

Water Moderates Temperature Absorbs heat from warmer air and releases heat to cool air Absorbs/releases large amounts of heat with only a slight change in its own temperature Measure avg speed of movement by temperature Due to high specific heat
Background image of page 8
Specific Heat The amount of heat that must be absorbed or lost for 1g of a substance to change its temperature by 1 o C 1 calorie/g/ o C (relatively high specific heat) How well a substance resists changing it’s temperature High specific heat due to hydrogen bonding Heat must be absorbed to break hydrogen bonds Heat is released when hydrogen bonds form
