13
1 pt
The atoms in a water molecule are covalently bonded? This means electrons are _____
removed
transferred
destroyed
shared
14
1 pt
Water is a compound formed when two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom ______ bond.
covalently
ionically
15
1 pt
What type of covalent bonds do water molecules have?
nonpolar covalent
polar slightly ionic
polar covalent
charged covalent
16
1 pt
Water will dissolve salt because
they are ionic bonds
water is nonpolar covalent bond and salt is a polar covalent bond
water is an ionic bond and salt is a polar bond
water is a polar covalent bond and salt is an ionic bond
17
1 pt
Water does not dissolve oil because
water has an ionic bond
oil is a polar molecule and water is nonpolar molecule
water is a polar molecule and oil is a nonpolar molecule
oil is ionic
18
1 pt
Which type of bonds do polar covalent bonds break down in chemical reactions?
polar covalent and ionic bonds
nonpolar covalent bonds and polar covalent bonds
ionic bonds and nonpolar bonds
none of the above
19
1 pt
Water molecules in ice are farther apart than in liquid water: so ice is less dense and floats.
True
False

1 pt
Water is a universal solvant because?
it is a polar covalent bond that can break down both ionic molecules and polar covalent molecules.
Water is ionic and breaks down polar molcules
Water is a non polar covalent bond that breaks down only other non polar molecules
water is what everything is made of so it must be the universal solvent.
