Polar Molecules

One of the main reasons water will dissolve so many compounds is that the water molecule is polar. In chemistry, polarity refers to a separation of electric charge leading to a molecule having an electric dipole. Consider a simple linear molecule like carbon monoxide (which can be quite toxic in enclosed areas, e.g. tents and garages), [...]

Module 4:

After completing this module, you will be able to: Describe the chemical and molecular properties of pure water and how they relate to water in the environment (e.g. the water cycle); Plan and conduct basic water quality monitoring using World Water Monitoring Day field kits in a sound scientific method to assess water quality; Communicate [...]
