Unformatted text preview: whereas a hydrogen bond is a weak attraction between an electronegative atom and a hydrogen atom. B) A polar covalent bond is when atoms of different elements don’t exert the same pull on shared electrons whereas a nonpolar covalent bond is when there is no difference in charge between the two ends of the bond. C) Hydrophilic substances is when sugars and other polar molecules easily hydrogen bond with a water molecule whereas a hydrophobic substance repels oils and other nonpolar molecules. 6. Water attracts polar molecules and repels nonpolar molecules because the charge water does carry is unevenly distributed, which makes its oxygen end a bit negative and its hydrogen end a bit positive. 7. An acid donates protons (H + ) to the water solution when dissolved in water and a base accepts H + when dissolved in water. A weak acid will try to neutralize whenever it is in solutions....
