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.


No. Water is a molecular compound. It is a polar molecule, in which the oxygen end of the molecule has a partial negative charge and the hydrogen end of the molecule has a partial positive charge. Despite the partial charges, water is not an ion.


the unequal sharing of electrons between the the hydrogen and oxygen atoms in a molecule but why does water have a partial charge?


Water is a polar covalent molecule. The partial charges in the molecule attract other charges, ionic or more partial charges from other covalent molecules and dissolves them. Nonpolar bonded molecules have no partial charges and the water molecules will attract each other thus not attracting the nonpolar and does not dissolve them.


The opposite ends of a polar molecule have opposite electric charges. The opposite ends of a polar molecule have a slightly positive and a slightly negative charges. The opposite ends of a polar molecule have a partial positive and a partial negative charges.


The opposite ends of a polar molecule have parital positive and partial negative charges.


The Oxygen molecule and Hydrogen molecules have different electronegativity (due to position on periodic table). As Oxygen is more electronegative it draws the negatively charged electrons towards itself. This makes the hydrogen atoms more positive and hence the partial charges.


A Water Molecule has molecular 4mula "H2O". H+ & OH- are the charges on water.because of these charges,water molecule is called a polar molecule.


Polar molecules have separation of charges .ie. they have a partial positive and partial negative charges on molecule as in water . Non polar molecules e.g.methane has no separation of positive and negative charges as difference of electronegativity in C and H is very small .


The water molecule (H2O) is neutral.


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


No. A polar molecule (such as water) has partial positive and negative charges at each end, but these partial charges balance out to zero overall, leaving the molecule as a whole neutral. This is due to electrons being shared unevenly be the atoms in the molecule. A "charged molecule" would not be called a molecule. It would be called a polyatomic ion. A polyatomic ions has an overall net charge due to there being a different number of protons and electrons.


An atom or a molecule which has charge or a bond where the two atoms have partial charges.


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


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


The ends of the water molecule have opposite electrical charges


Polarity of the water molecule with the attraction of positive and negative partial charges is the basis for the hydrogen bonding.


They are partial charges, making the water molecule polar. This occurs because the oxygen atom is more electronegative than the hydrogen atoms, and therefore holds the electrons more tightly than the hydrogen atoms. This gives the oxygen atom a partial negative charge and the hydrogen atoms a partial positive charge.



A water molecule has both negative and positive charges.


The oxygen end of the water molecule has a partial negative charge.


The H atoms with partial + charges attract O atoms with partial - charges on other water molecules.


Polar molecules happen when there is an unequal sharing of electrons in a covalent bond. This leads to a partial positive change on one molecule and a partial negative charge on the other. An example of this is water (H2O). The hydrogens have partial positive charges and the oxygen has a partial negative charge.


Usually in electron-dot diagrams, partical charges are shown by the lower case delta


A polar molecule...such as water. The oxygen molecules pulls the electrons closer, causing the oxygen to have a more negative charge and the two hydrogen atoms to have more positive charges. this is very important in the bonding of water molecules to other water molecules.
