    It bonds to form H3O+ ion with acids, H2SO4,and H2NCH2COOH

    You should recognize sulphuric acid, and that organic acids contain the COOH group

    X-Hδ+....δ- Y Hydrogen bonding only occurs when BOTH X and Y are the electronegative elements N,O and F; the last is limited because of the limited F bonding. X and Y can be the same atom. If we consider the H in the molecules concerned then Y = O of H2O.

    CH2Cl2 C-H only so no H bonding

    H2SO4 in water is mainly H3O^+ and [SO4]^2- but there is a small amount of [HSO4]^- that can H bond with water: S-O-Hδ+....δ-OH2

    H3COCH3 C-H only so no H bonding

    H2NCH2COOH [ignore Zwitterion] weak acid RC(O)-O-Hδ+....δ-OH2 and weak base N-Hδ+....δ-OH2

    that can H bond with water.

    A hydrogen bond is the attractive interaction of a hydrogen atom with an electronegative atom, such as nitrogen, oxygen or fluorine, that comes from another molecule or chemical group. The hydrogen must be covalently bonded to another electronegative atom to create the bond. These bonds can occur between molecules (intermolecularly), or within different parts of a single molecule

    for them ti bond it must be soluble in water ......... so the last 2 will bond
