2 The Molecular Structure of Water ! + ! + ! - ! - polar covalent bonds non-bonding electrons Dissolving Power of Water highest of any substance known solvation effects – must consider the molecular interactions between water (solvent) and dissolved substances (solutes) Simple case: NaCl solid " Na + solvated + Cl - solvated Na + Cl - The Hydrogen Bond Hydrogen Bond # + # + # - # - # + # + # - # - electrostatic attraction between partial + and – charges on separate molecules

Three States (Phases) of Water Two opposing forces determine the structure of water in its three phases: H-bonds hold water molecules together Thermal (kinetic) energy pushes molecules apart increases with increasing temperature solid, liquid gaseous Three States (Phases) of Water Low temperature limit E H-bond > E thermal maximum number of H-bonds maximum order, low thermal motion regular lattice structure of ice ice (solid) Three States (Phases) of Water The intermediate case
