pH a measure of how acidic or basic something is on a scale of 0 to 14
covalent bond a bond formed by the sharing of electrons, like the bond between the oxygen and the hydrogens of a water molecule
hydrogen bond a weak bond, like the bond between the oxygen and the hydrogen of two separate water molecules
ionic bond a bond formed by the transfer of electrons
surface tension an increased attraction of molecules at the surface of a liquid that causes water drops to hold their shape
solvent the greater part of a solution, able to dissolve other substances, (the water in salt water)
acid a pH value between 0 and 7
reactant what goes into a chemical reaction, written before the arrow
cohesion water molecules being attracted to other water molecules
heat capacity/specific heat the heat required to raise the temperature of a substance by a specific amount
capillary action The movement of a liquid through a narrow space as a result of cohesion, adhesion, and surface tension
base a pH value between 7 and 14
adhesion water molecules being attracted to different molecules
polarity the direction of electrical charge
solute the lesser part of a solution, what is being dissolved, (the salt in salt water)
product what comes out of a chemical reaction, written after the arrow
