The water molecule does not have a negative charge. The oxygen end of the molecule has a partial negative charge and the hydrogen end has a partial positive charge. This is because the oxygen atom is more electronegative than the hydrogen atoms, and tends to hold the shared electrons more tightly than the hydrogen atoms.

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


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


A water molecule has both negative and positive charges.


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


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.


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


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


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


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.



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



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


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


The oxygen in the water molecule has small negative charge.


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



Yes, and the hydrogen has a partial positive 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.


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


When water molecules are attracted to other water molecules, this is called COHESION. This is because the oxygen end of water has a negative charge and the hydrogen end has a positive charge. The hydrogens of one water molecule are attracted to the oxygen from the other water molecules. This is what causes Cohesion. :)


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.


It means there is a positive side and a negative side to it. The 2 atoms of Hydrogen in a water molecule bond asymetrically to the oxygen atom. Like this O / \ H H Instead of this way H--O--H The molecule then has a more positive charge on the Hydrogen side of the molecule and a negative charge on the Oxygen side. ( When a molecule is polar, it means that the molecule has been given a charge. In water, H2O, Oxygen has a charge and so does hydrogen. However, because there is such a large difference in electronegativity between the Oxygen and the Hydrogens, then the distribution of electrons within the molecule becomes uneven. This causes one end of the molecule to contain a slightly postive charge and the other end to possess a slightly negavtive charge. ) Hope This WiLL HeLp u !! ))
