Unformatted text preview: and 0.5 kg of ice cubes to take it to a state where all of the content vaporize. b) Now calculate how much more energy you would need to add to completely dissociate the water molecules into O and H atoms. This happens in a two-step process. First, the H 2 O becomes OH and H. Then the OH radicals break apart. You will need to look up how strong the OH-H bond is, and how strong the O-H bond is. c) Go c) compare the energy required in each process. 3. The image on the next page shows the molecular structure of coal. The carbon atoms making up the ring structures are not labeled, but they really are there. I have circled several bonds in this structure. Knowing what you now know about chemistry, compare the strengths of the bonds (labeled bonds a, b, c, d, and e). Give a brief statement regarding the relative strengths of each of the bonds: compare a-b, a-c, a-d, a-e, b-c, b-d, b-e, c-d, and d-e....
