1 Submicroscopic Particles Electrically Attract One Another • Polar Molecule- A molecule in which the bonding electrons are unevenly distributed. • Dipole- When one side of the molecule carries a slightly negative charge and the other side carries a slightly positive charge. • Iondipole attraction- When the opposite charges electrically attract one another. When the attraction happens between an ion and the dipole of a polar molecule. • These attractions are weaker than ionic bonds. • A solution in water is called an aqueous solution • Polar Molecules attract other polar molecules. • An attraction like this is called a dipole-dipole attraction (Ex: Hydrogen bond is exceptionally strong.)
