By electrolysis oxygen and hydrogen atoms separate.
Hydrogen peroxide purchased from a store or science supply house has been stabilized so that expected loss due to spontaneous decomposition into oxygen and water is less than 3% per year. Without adding a catalyst, you will have to wait a very long time to collect the oxygen from a sample of hydrogen peroxide.
The unstable nature of sodium and other alkali metals makes it fun to throw in water. Sodium rips apart the oxygen and hydrogen atoms that form water, thus converting water into hydrogen and oxygen. Then, the immense heat generated by the reaction will ignite the hydrogen, fusing it with oxygen to form water (water atoms is made out of one oxygen atom and two hydrogen atoms), and also at that time the fire made by the hydrogen that was set aflame will create that big explosion and fire.
Oxygen in more electronegative than hydrogen and the electrons therefor spend more time near the oxygen nucleus.
When you put hydrogen and oxygen together, the electrons spend most of their time on oxygen since it is more electronegative than hydrogen. This causes there to be a "partial charge" on both hydrogen and oxygen. Since oxygen has the electrons spending more time on it, it is more negative than hydrogen. So in H2O, the hydrogens are slightly more positive than the oxygens. When water molecules come near each other, the slightly positive hydrogens are then attracted to the slightly negative oxygens, and you end up having hydrogen bonding.
A water molecule is partially charged due to the difference in electronegavities of hydrogen and oxygen. Water has a neutral chemical nature because the oxygen atom in the water molecule tend to pull the electrons from the hydrogen two hydrogen atoms thus spend most of their time arround oxygen. This causes the oxygen to have a partial negative charge which is 2- and each of the hydrogen atom become partially positively charged (the hydrogen partial charges sum up to 2+).These charges cancel (-2+2= 0) each other hence the chemical nature of water is neutral.
Water is h20 which is 2 oxygen atoms and one hydrogen atom to every bit of water. hydrogen and oxygen are a gas at the time oxygen is made...well as far as i know anyways...but I'm just a very intellegent year 8 student from London!
the electrons shared between the oxygen and hydrogen atoms spend more time around the oxygen atom nucleus than around the hydrogen atom nucleus.
If you think of it in terms of time, the electrons always spend more on the oxygen. This creates polar bonds, and as the molecule is not symmetrical, it means that the whole molecule is polar.
The oxygen molecule becomes more negative while the hydrogens become more positive. Creating a polar molecule which is what creates hydrogen bonding between water molecules.
No. To convert it to "Hydrogen" requires a fuel cell and appropriate oxygen / hydrogen separator components. Technology has not reached that point of evolution at this time.
Yes. When water stays on certain metals for a period of time, the chemicals in water (Hydrogen, Oxygen) rust the bike.
Hydrogen and Oxygen are always in a ratio of 2:1.
Oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen - meaning the electrons they share will spend more time near the oxygen. This causes the oxygen to have a partial negative charge, and the hydrogens to have a partial positive charge - making water polar.
Because the electronegativity of oxygen is about 3.5 and the electronegativity of hydrogen is about 2.5. So, the electrons shared in this polar covalent bond spend more time in the orbitals around oxygen that the orbitals around hydrogen giving the molecule slightly negative and positive ends.
The most important thing to know is that water is h2o meaning it is made of 1 hydrogen atom and 2 oxygen atoms. Hydrogen and oxygen are both elements that are commonly found throughout the universe. When the earth was being formed all the elements were coming together and swirling and condensing to become a planet. This was a time of great chaos and massive amounts of energy were around and atoms were colliding left and right. Somewhere in this jumbled mess hydrogen combined with oxygen and created water.

By the time you wait for someone to answer, you know the answer. So, if you know the answer, can you please improve my answer. Not for me but at least for the other people that will have this question in the future. Please...................(^,^)
The water is a polar molecule because it is not equally charged. Its half side has a positive charge and the other half has a negative charge. because the electrons spend more of their time with the oxygen and not with hydrogen and due to this they get more negative charge and due to this the water is a polar molecule.---------------------------------------------------------------1. The water molecule is not linear.2. Oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen.3. As a consequence the hydrogen atoms are slightly positive and the molecule is polar.
Water molecules are special molecules in that they're extremely polar. The covalent bonds between the oxygen atom and the two hydrogen atoms are un-even because the oxygen atom is very electronegative. This means the shared electrons spend more time near the oxygen nucleus and less time near the hydrogen neuclei. This causes the oxygen side of the atom to be partially charged negative and the hydrogen sides partially positive. Each water molecule is in effect a small magnet. They align with each other positive to negative, one after another. With water, this structure is called hydrogen bonding because the effect is so strong with hydrogen because there are no electrons to shield the partial positive charge of the hydrogen neuclei. The linkage between these hydrogen bonds cause water molecules to adhere strongly to one another, resisting interfacial surface area, causing the extraordinary high surface tension.
It is the oxygen responsible for the killing of germs. When hydrogen peroxide is applied to a surface, it reacts quickly and then breaks down into water hydrogen. At the same time, free oxygen radicals are released; these create oxidation, a chemical process in which oxygen combines with another substance to break down or change the function of the molecules. Through oxidation, the bacteria decomposes, rendering it harmless.
True. Water is slightly negative on the oxygen end and slightly positive on the hydrogen's end of the molecule. This is because oxygen is much more electronegative than hydrogen, so the electrons in the covalent bond spend more time around the oxygen.
There are many examples of decomposition reaction. A notable example is hydrogen peroxide, which will decompose into water and oxygen over a slow period of time.
No.But it does give you salty water..
Sodium is a brother of the alkali metals, a group of highly reactive elements. Like all alkali metals, a atom of sodium has one extremely loose electron attached on its outer shell, and it is really annoying to the sodium, and, in response, alkali metals will react with almost anything they touch to get rid of that electron, water as listed one of them. When a chunk of sodium or any other alkali metal hits water, it starts a violent reaction. The sodium is so highly reactive that it grabs the hydrogen and oxygen atoms that form water and rips them apart, vaporizing water into flammable hydrogen and oxygen. The massive heat generated by the reaction ignites the hydrogen and oxygen, fusing them into water (two hydrogen atoms and one hydrogen atom), at the same time the fire that was set aflame by the hydrogen will create the massive fire and explosion.
it is one of the molecules in water or h20. hydrogen is a gas and is inside water and you drink it every time you drink water. Hydrogen can be also used to power hydrogen powered cars.
