Usually neutral. However, also note that water has an electric dipole, i.e., the molecule has a positive and a negative side.

What is the majority of negative charge on the water molecule?

there has to be a negative charge in the molecule as there is a positive charge. there is a negative charge and when it and a positive charge gets together it forms something that makes the charge neutral


Which water molecule has a partial positive charge?

hydrogen has a positive charge and oxygen has a negative charge.


What type of charge does a water molecule have?

A water molecule has both negative and positive charges.


What struggle produces the partial negative and partial positive charges on a water molecule?

The water molecule has a partial negative and partial positive charge because it is a polar molecule. Electrostatic attraction between the partial negative and partial positive molecules gives the water molecule its partial charge.


What is positive in a water molecule?

The hydrogen atoms in a water molecule have a partial positive charge, while the oxygen atom has a partial negative charge.


Explain how a water molecule can be attracted to both a positive ion and a negative ion when dissolving an ionic compound?

The shape and charge distribution in a water molecule cause it to have a permanent dipole moment, which consist of a positive electric charge and a negative charge separated by a distance in space. Therefore, the part of a water molecule that corresponds to the negative charge of its dipole moment is attracted to positive ions, and the part of a water molecule that corresponds to the positive charge of its dipole moment is attracted to negative ions.


What is the charge of the oxygen end of a water molecule?

The oxygen end of a water molecule has a partial negative charge. The hydrogen atoms have a partial positive charge.


Is oxygen in water electro positive?

The oxygen in the water molecule has small negative charge.


Do molecules always have a negative charge?

Molecules are neutral, they do not have an overall charge, although in many cases there will parts of a molecule which have a negative charge and other parts that have a positive charge (for example, in a water molecule, the oxygen atom has a negative charge and the two hydrogen atoms have a positive charge).



What is positively and negatively charged in a water molecule?

The oxygen end of a water molecule has a partial negative charge, and the hydrogen atoms have a partial positive charge.


Does the oxygen atom in a water molecule have a partial negative charge?

Yes, and the hydrogen has a partial positive charge.


Which atoms in a water molecule have a partial positive charge?

The hydrogen atoms possess a partial positive charge, and the oxygen is the negative end.


Does the hydrogen of water molecule have a slight positive charge?

Yes, a water molecule is polar with one pole positive (the hydrogens side) and negative on the oxygen side.



What are the partial charges in a water molecule?

A partial negative charge forms at the oxygen end of the water molecule, and a partial positive charge forms at the hydrogen ends.


Do the hydrogen atoms in a water molecule tend to be slightly negative?

No, the hydrogen atoms in a water molecule carry a partial positive charge. The oxygen atom is partially negative.



Why are the oxygen end of a water molecule to the hydrogen end of another water molecule?

Oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen, meaning that in a water molecule the oxygen will carry a partial negative charge and the hydrogens will carry a partial positive charge. This allows the (partially negative) oxygen to bind to the (partially positive) hydrogen of another water molecule.


Why is a water molecule considered to be polar?

A water molecule is considered a polar molecule because of its shape. That is, its poles contain opposing charges, the positive and negative charge.


How do water molecules attract other water molecules?

The Oxygen atom in water hogs electrons from the Hydrogen atoms, giving it a negative charge, and the hydrogens a positive charge. Because of this, water molecules have positive and negative ends. The positive Hydrogens in one molecule will attract the negative Oxygen in another.


Is Positive or Negative of Oxygen?

For my ANSER IS: The unequal sharing of electrons gives the water molecule a slight negative charge near its oxygen atom and aslightpositive charge near its hydrogen atoms. When a neutralmolecule has a positive area at one end and a negative area at the other, it is a polar molecule.


In a water molecule which atom has a partial negative charge?

hydrogen is partially positive and oxygen is partially negative so your answer is oxygen


The oxygen atom in a water molecule has a slight negative charge?

Yes, and the hydrogen atoms carry a slight positive charge.


Why does salt and sucrose dissolve in water easily?

Water is a polar molecule, meaning that the hydrogen end has a negative charge, while the oxygen end has a positive charge. When other polar molecules are exposed to these charges they split apart. In salt the sodium has a positive charge that is attracted to the hydrogen's negative charge, and a the chloride has a negative charge that is attracted to oxygen's positive charge.
