Water

HideShow resource information
What is a polar molecule?
Molecules with an uneven charge.
1 of 7
Why is water a good solvent?
Because water molecules are attracted to polar molecules and ions.
2 of 7
How are water molecules attracted to each other?
Hydrogen bonds
3 of 7
What is specific heat capacity?
the amount of heat per unit mass required to raise the temperature by one degree Celsius
4 of 7
Does water have a low of high specific heat capacity?
High
5 of 7
Why does water become less dense in solid form?
So when it freezes ice floats to the top to insulate the rest of the water below it. This prevents the hole body of water freezing.
