 Activity: The Polarity of Water 
Click hereto complete this activity.Then answer the questions.
Part A
Each water molecule is joined to _____ other water molecules by ____ bonds. ANSWER:
 As can be seen in the illustration on page 1 of the activity titled "The Polarity of Water" a water molecule is joined to four other water moleculesby hydrogen bonds.
Part B
The unequal sharing of electrons within a water molecule makes the water molecule _____. ANSWER:
The electrons spend more time with the oxygen of the water molecule than with the hydrogens of water. Thus, the oxygen has a net negativecharge and the hydrogens have a net positive charge.
Part C
The tendency of an atom to pull electrons toward itself is referred to as its _____. ANSWER:

The question defines electronegativity.
Part D
In this molecule, what type of bond is found between the oxygen and hydrogens? ANSWER:
While oxygen shares electrons with hydrogen, the electrons spend more time with the oxygen than with the hydrogens.
Part E

Hydrogen Bonds are weaker than covalent bonds because they do not involve sharing of electrons, and they are weaker than ionic bonds becausethey involve the attraction of partial (not full) opposite charges.
Part F
Why isn't this insect drowning? ANSWER:
The high surface tension of water allows the insect to remain on the surface.
Chapter 3 Pre-Test Question 1
Part A
Water molecules have a polarity, which allows them to be electrically attracted to other water molecules and other polar molecules by weak chemicalbonds known as _____.The insect is very light.It is difficult to change the temperature of water.The insect is flying just above the water surface.Surface tension.The insect is swimming.
