1 Dissociation of water molecules pH
T.O.D: (table from old study guide) take home essay? Chapter 3: Water Water’s Polarity Cohesion, moderation of temperature, ice is less dense, universal solvent Dissociation of water molecules pH

2 WATER: the stuff of life!


4 Water’s polarity and hydrogen bonds
Account for its unique properties that contribute to the fitness of Earth’s as an environment for life.

5 Cohesion/Adhesion Cohesion is water’s attraction to water
Adhesion is water’s attraction to other substances Surface tension Water transport in plants, up ___ tubes

6 Stabilize temperatures
WHY? High specific heat Water moderates global and organismal temperatures Evaporative cooling is important for animals as well as plants

7 Expansion upon freezing
Because of Hydrogen bonding … 0° C Ice is less dense than liquid water When is water most dense? If this didn’t happen, bodies of water would freeze solid

8 Structure of Ice vs liquid water

9 Versatile Solvent: Ex: Salt and water
Ionic and polar com- pounds dissolve in water

10 Even very large molecules like proteins dissolve in water as long as there are areas of ionic or polar bonds.

11 The pH scale pH=The measure of H+ and OH- in a solution. Scale 0-14…
Acids=increase the H+ concentration Bases=reduce the H+ concentration

12 pH = -log[H+] Buffers Acid rain Neutral = 10-7[H+]
Ex: pH 9 has H+ concentration of 10-9 M and an OH- concentration of 10-5 M Practice problems… Buffers Acid rain

13 Ch.1-4 Quiz study tips: Practice questions at the end of the chapters
The test’s CD ROM demonstrations and practice questions Study your HW notes and class notes
