Chapter 2: Water Water is the principal component in most cells Ionic compounds : compounds with full (or whole) charges; e.g. KCl, NaCl Polar compounds : have partial charges e.g. ethyl alcohol Polarity: when atoms share a chemical bond (covalent compound); share electrons e - unevenly Electronegativity : tendency of an atom to attract electrons to itself in a chemical bond and become more negative; e.g. oxygen in water

Partial charges : when atoms share electrons unevenly there is a charge seperation, with the atoms having partial charges δ - and δ + Non polar : when the electronegativity difference between two atoms is small or non existant; -they basically share the electrons evenly -e.g. C-H -there can be polar bonds in a compound and the compound still be non polar

The polarity of water allows it to interact with ions; the partial positive charge on H interacts with negative ions (Cl - ) and the partial negative on O allows it to interact with positive ions (Na + ); The partial charges in water can also interact with partial charges on other molecules

Hydrophilic: Ionic and polar substances are water-loving; -any substance with a charge -they will dissolve in water Hydrophobic : water-hating; -non polar molecules -do not dissolve in water Dipole-Induced Dipole interaction :Water can form a very weak bond with at non polar compound by inducing a dipole in the non polar compound; -not favorable -water has a higher attraction for other water molecules than a non polar substance

Amphipathic : when one molecule has both hydrophobic and hydrophilic portions

Micelle : this is formed when a amphipathic compound comes in contact with water; -polar headgroups point out in contact with the water -non polar tails face in

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
