You have seen that the water molecule has a bent shape and therefore is a polar molecule. This accounts for many of water’s interesting properties. What if the water molecule were linear? How would this affect the properties of water? How would life be different?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

What was the effect if water molecules were linear must be explained? What are the effects on properties of water must also be explained? How would life be different must be explained?

Concept Introduction:

Water molecule is a polar molecule due to angular shape (due to presence of lone pair of electrons on oxygen).

Explanation

As per the structure for dipole moment bent structure is required. If the molecule is considered linear then dipole moment is expected to be zero...
