hydrogen bonding in water

Postby Christineg1G » Mon Nov 11, 2019 10:09 am

What do the series of short lines represent in bonds? For example, the hydrogen bonding in water example that was shown in class on Friday.

The series of short lines represents the hydrogen bond between the two H2O molecules (making it an intermolecular force). This is done to differentiate from the intramolecular covalent bonds, which are solid lines.

It is meant to show the hydrogen bond between two water molecules.

The partial negative charge on the Oxygen is attracted to the partial positive of the Hydrogen. The short lines represent that attraction.
