What are the different forms of water? b. How is water able to form in these ways? c. How is bonding important? 2. Make a model of carbon dioxide, draw the Lewis structure, then answer the following questions: a. How does carbon dioxide differ from water? b. What type of bond is found in carbon dioxide? 3. Make a model of sodium chloride, draw the Lewis structure, then answer the following questions: a. What type of bond is found in sodium chloride? b. How does sodium chloride interact with water? 4. Why is ice less dense than water? 5. Why don’t oil and vinegar mix? You should discuss this in terms of what happens at a molecular level. 6.
