Learning Objectives BILD1 – Halpain Lecture 2. Review of Chemical Principles (continued) & Water 1. Use valence diagrams to predict and diagram the chemical bonding between atoms (e.g., covalent bonds, ionic bonds) 2. Understand how orbital shape contributes to molecular shape 3. With the use of a diagram or diagrams, explain why water molecules are: polar and capable of hydrogen bonding with 4 neighboring water molecules. 4. Explain 4 properties of water that are critical to supporting life on earth and how these relate to hydrogen bonding 5. Understand the concept of ‘specific heat’ and be able to work calculations using it. 6. Distinguish between hydrophobic and hydrophilic substances.

Be able to determine pH from either hydrogen ion or hydroxide ion concentration, and vice versa. 9. Explain how acids and bases may directly or indirectly alter the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution. 10. Using the bicarbonate buffer system as an example, explain how buffers work.
