3. (?points total} It is a commonly accepted fact that when you are “dirty”, soap and water
used together removes the dirt from your body more easily than water alone. Surfactants, such as palmitic acid shown below, are a major component of most soap.
0 WWW-l [a] [3 points, N0 partial credit} What is the strongest type of intermolecular interaction
that water could have with this palmitic acid molecule? lb] {4 points, N0 partial credit] Clearly circle the response that correctly fills in the
blanks in the following statement: Based on the information given in this problem, dirt must be
and can interact with palmitic acid through {A} hydrophilic, dipole—dipole forces
(B) hydrophobic, dipole—dipole forces
[Ci hydrophobic, dispersion forces
[D] hydrophilic, dispersion forces {E} not enough information is given
