Problem: Identify the characteristics of intermolecular interactions including hydrogen bonding, ion-dipole, and the hydrophobic effect. In the drawings below, a solid line represents a covalent bond and a dotted line represents an intermolecular attraction. Select the drawing(s) that contain a hydrogen bond.a) H —Hb) —O••••••H—C—c) —N••••••H—O—d) —C••••••H—F—

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Hoeger's class at UCSD.

Hydrogen bonds occurs to Hs attached to an electronegative atom (N, O or F) 

a) H —H → covalent bonds 

b) —O••••••H—C— → H is not attached to N, O or F

c) —N••••••H—O— → H is attached to O; temporary bond between N and H
