# Draw a labelled diagram to show H-bonding between 2 molecules of liquid ammonia

1. Liquid ammonia, NH3, and water, H20, both show H-Bonding.

So basically, i know how to draw it.. but erm could someone please clarify whether it's a or b:

a) only link two NH3 via h-bonding...h20 molecule not relevant - so don't include.

or

b) link two NH3 using a water molecule.

Two NH3.

Two NH3.
so basically...a??

aah, cheers.

bdway,

how do i suggest the formula for sodium chlorate (vii) ??

Not sure.

I'd go with NaClO3, but I may be wrong.
it's NaCl04 butt i dunno y. oh nvm. thnxxx.

At this point, do you need to know why?
7. If you're using oxidation states:

O = -2
Na = +1
---
4(-2) + 1 = -7

So the Cl must have an oxidation number of +7, hence your sodium chlorate (vii) ion.

genius!

i get it!
9. so basically if it was sodium chlorate (III) then the Cl would have an ox. no. of +3 ?? aaah and then the formula would be NaCl02 ??

That'd be my approach, yes.
