1) Which of the following properties of water can be explained using hydrogen bonding arguments?
1. its ability to dissolve most ionic compounds.
2. its high boiling point.
3. its low vapor pressure
a) only 1 or only 2 or only 3
b) 1 and 2 only
c) 1 and 3 only
d) 2 and 3 only
e) 1 and 2 and 3
I think that all three of the statements are correct? Is this right.
I don't know about 1. I think the polar nature of H2O has more to do with dissolving ionic substances.
Ok so would you say just high boiling point and low vapor pressure?
Those would be my answers.
