a water molecule is polar because it has one side that is negatively charged and one side that is positively charged


Yes. The oxygen end is slightly negatively charged, and the hydrogen end is slightly positively charged.


The molecule is polarized: positively charged on one side, negatively charged on the other side.


Water is a "polar" molecule; one end of the molecule is negatively charged while the other end is positively charged.


The oxygen atom, which is negatively charged, is on one end ("pole") of the molecule, and the hydrogen atoms, which are positively charged, are on the other pole.


Water is neutral. This is because it has hydrogen and oxygen particles. One is positively charged, one negatively. This means that they cancel out - water is neutral.


Yes, water is a polar molecule. It has a positively charged end and a negatively charged end, causing the molecules to line up. It is this polarity that causes water to have surface tension.



There are two hydrogen atoms. Hydrogen is positively charged. That means that there is a 2+. There is one oxygen atom. Oxygen is negatively charged. This means that there is a 1-. (2+) - (1-) = 1+ charge A water molecule is polar because one side of the molecule is positively charged and the other is negatively charged due to it's molecular structure.


A molecule which is positively charged in one section of the molecule and negatively charged in another section is described as a polar molecule. The most common example of this is water.


Solute molecules can be positively charged, negatively charged, or neutral. For example, dissolving sodium chloride in water produces positively charged sodium cations and negatively charged chloride anions. Dissolving sucrose (table sugar) in water produces only dissolved neutral sucrose molecules.


No following, but this is a polar molecule, H2O water Slightly negatively charged on the oxygen end and slightly positively charged on the hydrogen end. Neutral overall.


water is a V shaped polar molecule that is charged positively near hydrogen atom and negatively near the oxygen atom


Water and salt both consist of what we call polar molecules. This means electrons in the molecule are not equally shared between the atoms of the molecule, causing a partial charge on the molecule's atoms. When salt is put into water, the positively charged side of water molecules surround the negatively charged chlorine, and the negatively charged side of the water molecules surrounds the positively charged sodium. This breaks the sodium chloride bond and the salt is dissolved.


water molecules are polar (there is an unequal charge around the molecule) The oxygen end of the water molecule is negatively charged and the hydrogen ends of the water molecule is positively charged. thus, the oxygen will attract positive atoms and the hydrogens will attact negative atoms


Each molecule of water is polarized, which means that one side is positively charged and the other side is negatively charged. Because of this, when water runs over a substance, the water molecules catch on to the other molecules and pull them into the water (decay), or stick them to each molecule (as in a solution).


A Hydrogen Bond. Weaker than covalent bonds, the positively charged hydrogen area of one water molecule interacts with the negatively charged oxygen end of an adjacent water molecule, forming a hydrogen bond.


Ionic substances dissolve in water because of the attraction exerted between positive ions and the negatively charged oxygen part of the water molecule, and also between negative ions and the positively charged hydrogen part of the water molecule.


Water (H2O) consists of two elements, hydrogen and oxygen. In water molecules, hydrogen forms a cation (positively charged ion) and oxygen forms the anion (negatively charged ion). Thus, in a water molecule, the oxygen atom is more electronegative.


Water is considered a polar molecule (not bipolar), because it has parts that are positively charged and parts that are negatively charged. When you have a separation of charges (+ and -), you have polarity. In water, H-O-H (H2O) the H parts are partially +ve and the O part is partially -ve.


Due to the uneven distribution of the electron density, water is considered a polar molecule. The oxygen atom is more negatively charged at one end of the water molecule while the hydrogen atom at the other end is positively charged. The net result of these charges gives water its polarity.


Polar solvents are characterized by regions with strong positive or negative electrical charges. For example water, the most usual polar solvent, is negatively charged on the oxygen end of the molecule and positively charged on the hydrogen end, simply because the oxygen nucleus attracts the shared electrons more strongly than the hydrogen nuclei do (and the hydrogen atoms are arranged at the points of a tetrahedron, rather than in a straight line with the oxygen atoms). And a typical polar solute such as sodium chloride, has positively charged sodium ions and negatively charged chlorine ions because chlorine has a much stonger attraction for electrons than sodium does, so it takes an electron from sodium. And then, given Coulomb's Law, we get an attraction between oppositely charged chemicals or portions of chemicals; the positively charged sodium ions would be attracted to the negatively charged oxygen region of the water molecule, the negatively charged chlorine ions are attracted to the positively charged hydrogen region of the water molecule. It is these electrostatic attractions which cause the solute to dissolve in the solvent.


oxygen atoms are partially negatively charged


Good question! This is biology. Two substances i know for sure dissolve in water are salt and sugar. Water and salt both consist of what we call polar covalent bonds. This means electrons in the molecule are not equally shared between the atoms of the molecule, causing a partial charge on the molecule's atoms. Water, for instance, contains two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. The oxygen atom has a stronger pull on the electrons being shared, hence giving it a slightly negative charge. Since electrons are negatively charged, the oxygen part of the molecule is partially negatively charged and the hydrogen parts of the atom are partially positively charged. In salt, which is made of sodium and chlorine, the shared electrons spend almost all of their time on the chlorine side, making the chlorine negatively charged, and very little time on the sodium side, making the sodium positively charged. Just like the oxygen atom, the chlorine atom has a stronger pull on the shared electrons. When salt is put into water, the positively charged side of water molecules surround the negatively charged chlorine, and the negatively charged side of the water molecules surrounds the positively charged sodium. ( you know the saying "opposites attract") This breaks the sodium chloride bond and the salt is dissolved.


Electrolytes are positively or negatively charged particles that readily dissolve in water. The predominant positively charged electrolytes in the body are sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, while negatively charged electrolytes include chloride, phosphates, and bicarbonate
