FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to determine which among the given molecules can form hydrogen bonds with water.

Hydrogen Bond is the force that exists when H is directly connected to F, O, or N.


Let’s determine if there’s an H directly connected to F, O, or N in the molecule.

1. C3H8

▪ contains carbon and hydrogen only (hydrocarbons)
▪ nonpolar covalent compound
▪ only exhibit London-Dispersion forces (LDF)
