In the electrolysis of water, hydrogen and oxygen atoms are separated. They form their respective gases and escape the water molecules.

Hydrogen combines with oxygen to form water. The reaction is two molecules of hydrogen gas (H2) and one molecule of oxygen gas (O2) to form two molecules of water (H2O).

A chemical reaction between oxygen and hydrogen occur.

2 atoms (molecules) of hydrogen are needed to react with oxygen to form water.

Hydrogen and oxygen are elements that usually take the form of molecules.

Water is composed of Two Hydrogen atoms that form a polar covalent bond with an oxygen atom.

The molecules of water are held together by hydrogen bonding between molecules.These are electrostatic bonds (attraction forces between opposite charges) that hydrogen makes with the oxygen of neighbouring molecules. Hydrogen, when bonded to oxygen to form water molecules, is slightly positive and the oxygen in the water molecule is slightly negative. Hydrogen gets attracted to the neighbouring slightly negative oxygen atoms.This is great for life on Earth because small molecules the size of water tend to be gases but water is a liquid. It is a liquid due to the hydrogen bonding between molecules.

The hydrogen bond is between a hydrogen atom of a molecule of water and the oxygen atom of another molecule of water.

Chemical formula for water is H2O. One water molecule has 2 hydrogen atoms. That means 10 hydrogen atoms are needed to form five water molecules.The ration between hydrogen and oxygen in a water molecule is 2:1. In five water molecules, there are five oxygen atoms. According the ratio, there are 10 hydrogen atoms.

No. Carbohydrates do contain hydrogen and oxygen, but not in the form of individual water molecules.

Do you mean when combined? Because when Hydrogen gas (H2) is burned it combines with Oxygen (O2) to form Water (H2O). The extra oxygen is used to make another molecule of water. So two molecules of oxygen are needed and four molecules of Hydrogen.

Hydrogen and Oxygen.Related Information:2 molecules of Hydrogen for every molecule of Oxygen, when combined make water (H2O).Water is an oxide of hydrogen, and is formed when hydrogen reacts with oxygen. Water is not a fuel, it is an end-product of the combustion of hydrogen, which is a fuel.The energy required to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, is greater than the energy that can be collected when the hydrogen and oxygen recombine.

The oxygen in the water molecule is Partially negative and the Hydrogen in the water molecule is partially Positive . Thus they bond up to form Hydrogen Bond.

hydrogen + oxygen = HO, hydroxide: hydrogen + oxygen + oxygen = H20, water

two molecules of hydrogen gas plus one molecule of oxygen gas react to form two molecules of water

When hydrogen and oxygen combine to form water, water is a product of the reaction.

Water molecules can dissolve ionic compounds and form hydrogen bonds because of their high polarity and lone-pair electrons on the oxygen atom.

The hydrogen bonds that form between water molecules. A slightly positive hydrogen in one water molecule will form weak hydrogen bonds with the slightly positive oxygen on another water molecule.

In one water molecule, you have the slightly negatively charged oxygen side, and then you have the slightly positive hydrogen end. Because of this, the negative oxygen attracts positive hydrogens and vice versa in separate water molecules. This is where the hydrogen bonds are made.

Hydrogen and oxygen will react explosively to form water.

Water molecules are split by light energy during photosynthesis, forming oxygen and hydrogen as by-products. The hydrogen can then be used to fix carbon dioxide to form organic molecules.

A hydrogen bond can form among water molecules on opposite charges of polar molecules.

Hydrogen bonds form between water molecules and are relatively weak because there is actually no transferring or sharing of electrons. It would takes much less energy to break hydrogen bonds between water molecules than it does to break the molecules into oxygen and hydrogen.

No, carbohydrates do not contain water. They do have oxygen and hydrogen but not in the form of water molecules. The name carbohydrates means watered carbon.
