Solution: Ball-and-stick models and Lewis structures for two hydrated hydronium ions.Which type of intermolecular force do the dotted lines in this figure represent?

Problem

In the top figure, ball-and-stick models show the O in H2O connected via a dashed line to an H in H3O+, leading to H5O2+. In the bottom figure, ball-and-stick models show each H in H3O+ connected via dashed lines to O in H2O, leading to H9O4+.
Ball-and-stick models and Lewis structures for two hydrated hydronium ions.

Which type of intermolecular force do the dotted lines in this figure represent?

Solution

We are asked to determine which type of intermolecular force do the dotted lines in this figure represent.

The intermolecular force that the dotted lines represent is called “Hydrogen bonding”.
