Proving lenghts on water molecule
« on: September 03, 2019, 10:48:39 AM »
Hello guys :))

In my biochemistry classes, our professor got a task to us. We must prove that the smallest lenghts between the oxygens in the ice molecule are 2,8 A, 4,5 A and 7,0 A. We can use the angles in the molecule to prove it, I guess, but I don't know where to start. Do you guys have any thoughts about it ?

Thank you so much :))

Check the distance between hydrogen-bonded oxygen atoms. Most textbooks give information on this subject.
