A combination of 2 hydrogen atoms and 1 oxygen atom.
The size of a molecule depends on the size of the atom. The smallest a molecule can be is two atoms.
Water is a type of polar molecule. It is polar because it has two hydrogen atoms bonded uniquely to one atom of oxygen causing different charges in different areas.
Water is a molecule. Remember that a molecule is two or more atoms bonded together. Water (H 2 O) is a molecule of hydrogen and oxygen.
water molecules are just there to difuse into other liquids to make them more dilute, or less concentrated other than that, not a lot else
Different elements have different electro-negativities. Electro-negativity is the ability of an atom to withdraw 'electron density' towards itself, i.e. it makes electrons com…e closer to it. Fluorine is the most electronegative of the elements. Oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen and so in water (H2O) the oxygen 'pulls' the electrons closer to itself and become slightly negative, and the hydrogen's slightly positive, this is called a permanent dipole. Due to this effect water has many properties that make it unusual and important to living things.
A water molecule is a type of polar molecule. It has two oxygen and hydrogen dipoles that do not cancel out one another.
A water molecule is made up of two hydrogen atoms attached to one oxygen atom. The unique way in which they bond causes one are of the molecule to be negative and the other ar…ea to be positive. A water molecule is bonded in two ways" it has a polar covalent bond, and a hydrogen bond, making it very strong. 1) Water is a universal solvent, which means that other molecules are dissolved in it 2) Water is a cohesive. This means it sticks to other molecules surfaces. Water protects organs. It allows for the transport of molecules and provides lubrication, as well. 3)Water stabilizes body temperature does not change temperature quickly)/ 4) Water ionizes. I breaks apart into hydrogen ions and hydroxyl ions. ( Ions are positively or negatively charged charged). 5) Water has a higher capacity to heat than most other common things; it also freezes into ice or turns into steam, a gas. 5) Water is considered neutral on the pH scale, coming in at a pH of 7.
Yes, water is a bend molecule with a bond angle of about 105 degrees. They are described as bent planar (or V shaped)
Air molecules is a little vague, the air that we breath is a mixture of mainly nitrogen (72% or so) oxygen and carbon dioxide. A water molecule is H20, two hy…drogen polar covalently bonded to one Oxygen. Besides for the two bonds to H the oxygen also has 2 lone pairs of electrons. To spread the charge the molecule has a bent shape. Due to the difference in electronegativity between H and O and the shape of the molecule water is polar. This allows water to hydrogen bond which connect s the H from one molecule to the O of another molecule, holding water together as a liquid. When you boil water these intermolecular forces are overcome and each individual molecule separates from each other, creating water vapor ( which is water in the gas phase). However, each individual water molecule remains the same.
If you meant 'is water a molecule' then - yes. It consists of 2 atoms of hydrogen and 1 atom of oxygen.
There is 1 molecule of water in a molecule of water. That 1 molecule is comprised of 1 Oxygen atom and 2 Hydrogen atoms.
There's a picture in the linked page showing a single water molecule, consisting of one oxygen atom (in red) and two hydrogen atoms (in white), hence, the formula for a si…ngle molecule of water, H2O.
Water is a compound containing two elements: oxygen and hydrogen,H 2 O.
