a. Covalent bond­ form when atoms share electrons; examples­  hydrogen, water, oxygen b. Ionic bond­ attractive force between oppositely charged ions; positive  when it loses electrons, negative when it gains electrons; example­ 
c. Hydrogen bond­ form between polar molecules; weak forces between  water molecules
background image 7. Why is water a polar molecule?  The electrons of the covalent bonds are not  shared equally between oxygen and hydrogen. 8. Name 5 properties of water. a. Cohesion
