Unformatted text preview: Water. Ch. 3. Two major concepts: Physical properties: Polarity, H bonds Surface tension (cohesion) Thermodynamics heat of vaporization specific heat: calorie Ice floats Solvent; concentration Modulate atmospheric conditions Thermodynamics • Energy – Potential energy (concentration, structure) – Kinetic energy • Heat • Temperature • Calories: little cal, big cal (cal, kcal, Cal) • Specific heat • Relation to reactions Many properties of water depend upon hydrogen bonds – The slightly negative regions of one molecule are attracted to the slightly positive regions of nearby molecules, forming a hydrogen bond. – Each water molecule can form hydrogen bonds with up to four neighbors. 1.0 When water reaches 0 o C, water becomes locked into a crystalline lattice with each molecule bonded to to the maximum of four partners. Ice is about 10% less dense than water at 4 o C. 1.0 The tensile strength of water is due to: 3 1. Salt bridges 2. Covalent bonds 3. Hydrogen bonds 4. High molecular weight 1.0 •...
