Figure 1 Figure 2

Figure I in the diagram shows the molecular structure of water while Figure II shows electron
configurations of water. Based on the diagrams answer the following questions.

1a What is the bond angle between oxygen and the two hydrogen atoms in the water


1b Name bond F in Figure 1.


1c Name the type of bond between the hydrogen atom and the oxygen atom in the
water molecule.


1d Why is water considered as a dipolar molecule?


1 The phenomena when water molecules attract other molecules is known as

A cohesion B adhesion
C tension D bonding

2 Water at the surface of a lake will from a thin film allowing small invertebrates to
‘walk’ on its surface. This property of water is known as.

A adhesion B cohesion
C surface tension D capillarity

3 Which of the following statements about water are true?

I Density of water decreases as temperature increases between 4°C and

II Density of water increases as temperature increases between 0°C and
III Maximum density is at 4°C (molecules are relatively close), not 0°C.
IV Ice is more dense than water

A I and III B II and IV

C I ,II and III D I,II,III and IV

4 Water temperature will only increase after absorbing a lot of heat energy.
Why does the temperature did not rise immediately?

A heat is absorbed by hydrogen and oxygen atom

B heat is quickly lost into the atmosphere
C heat is absorbed to lower activation energy
D heat energy is used to break hydrogen bonds

5 What are the advantages of water having a very high heat of vaporization?

A A small amount of heat is needed to vaporize water

B A large amount of heat is lost when water evaporates
C Heat is lost when water heats up
D Water heats up very fast
