Molecules of Life

Chapter 2 & 3


Water properties l.jpg
Water properties

  • Unique properties based on its structure

  • Oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen

  • Electrons spend more time with oxygen than with hydrogen

  • Polar covalent bond

    • ie unequal sharing


Water properties3 l.jpg
Water Properties

  • Unique properties based on its polarity

  • Oxygen more electronegative than hydrogen results in unequal sharing of electron

Slight polar ends


Polarity of water causes stickiness l.jpg
Polarity of Water causes “stickiness”

Water molecules “stick” to each other in distinct patterns

resulting in organization of molecules


Why is polarity important l.jpg
Why is polarity important?

  • Polarity causes molecules to interact in unique ways that influence life

  • Encourages formation of hydrogen bonds


Cohesion l.jpg

Water molecules tendency to “stick” to each other

Forms hydrogen bonds in 3-d

Results in surface tension

Cohesion

Why is surface tension important…

Terminology l.jpg
Terminology

  • Heat= amount of energy associated with the movement of atoms and molecules in matter

  • Temperature= measures the intensity of heat
