63. You're wrong Bob. The ionic bond is strong enough so that hydrocarbons cling to raindrops that fall
What you're describing only occurs in the absence of significant water molecules in the atmosphere, like on Mars.

Now, Bob, you can take an Incomplete for this course and go back and re-register for Biochem 101 next semester. Please don't try to tutor other students, again. We'll discuss your future at this institution after your mid-terms in the Spring. You're free to go now.

One more thing. You might want to do some reading. Please, see:
