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 !! ))
