I'm liking endothermic reactions. They're cool :P
i know this is kind of a dumb question, but what is so special about the way water is bonded? i ended up leaving it blank on my last prac test. i always do good on the prac part but not the theory part
hmmm, probably has to do with the interactions between water molecules. they can hydrogen bond with one another
Hydrogen bonds means that the bonds are strong, and has a relatively high melting and boiling point compared to other smallish covalent molecular substances (water is somewhat small).
I think there's a bit more, but I can't remember exactly what it is
There is also the way that the Hydrogen bonding causes the water molecules to arrange themselves differently to other substances as it goes from a liquid to solid state, as it expands as it freezes, rather than contracting
