Homework Help: H bond

  1. Sep 21, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Hi I have a question. Predict which of the solutions below will exert the highest Vapor pressure

    O2 in HOH
    NH3 in HOH
    and CH3OH in HOH

    2. Relevant equations

    I drew them out. So I know that CH3OH HOH exhibits h bonding. So does NH3 HOH
    I was wondering about O2 and HOH. I think it does. Am I right? I don't care about the actual question right now or if I'm on the right parth with that I just want to know if O2 and HOH have h bonding. Thank you

    3. The attempt at a solution

    ##NH_{3}## does not exhibit H- bonding per se.
    ##NH_{3}+H-OH -->NH_{4}^+ +OH^-##

    Why can you explain? I don't understand your reason. NH3 to a lone pair on O2...seems like H bond to me.
