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

Where is the majority of negative charge on the water molecule?

Water molecules consist of hydrogen molecules and oxygen molecules. Most of the negative charge comes from the oxygen molecules while the hydrogen molecules carry the positive charge.


Does a water molecule have a positive charge negative charge or no charge?

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


What type of charge does a water molecule have?

A water molecule has both negative and positive charges.


What is the charge of the oxygen end of a water molecule?

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


What struggle produces the partial negative and partial positive charges on a water molecule?

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.


Which end is negitively charged on a water molecule?

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


Which water molecule has a partial positive charge?

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


What is positive in a water molecule?

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


Explain how a water molecule can be attracted to both a positive ion and a negative ion when dissolving an ionic compound?

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.



What is positively and negatively charged in a water molecule?

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


What causes the water molecule to have a negative charge?

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.


Do molecules always have a negative 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).



What are the partial charges in a water molecule?

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


What is true about water molecules?

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


Is oxygen in water electro positive?

The oxygen in the water molecule has small negative charge.


Do the hydrogen atoms in a water molecule tend to be slightly negative?

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


Does the oxygen atom in a water molecule have a partial negative charge?

Yes, and the hydrogen has a partial positive charge.



Is water a type of ion?

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.


Why is a water molecule considered to be polar?

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


Why are the oxygen end of a water molecule to the hydrogen end of another water molecule?

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.


Does hydrogen have a positive or negative charge?

A water molecule is polar with charge concentrated around the oxygen atom. Water is a polar molecule, having a pair of equal and opposite charges. But does hydrogen itself have any charge?
