Homework Help: Chemistry-Bonding

Posted by Mary on Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 5:53pm.

Is a water molecule more attracted to another water molecule or to a sodium ion? Explain.


I would say that the water molecule is more attracted to a sodium ion since it is a dipole and and it would attract sodium's single electron in its valence shell. Is this right? Would this then create an ionic bond between the water molecule and the sodium ion? Thanks!
