The oxygen molecule is slightly negative and the hydrogen molecules are slightly positive.



The slightly negative end of one polar molecule will be attracted to the slightly positive, hydrogen end of another molecule.



hydrogen bonds. In water, the 2 hydrogen atoms are slightly positive while the oxygen is slightly negative. The two hydrogen atoms will align themselves at one end of the oxygen atom making that side of the molecule slightly polar positive and the side without the hydrogen ions slightly polar negative. Thus, when two H2O molecules are next to each other, the slightly negative side of one molecule is attracted to the slightly positive side of the other water molecule and this attraction is called a hydrogen bond.


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


Yes, hydrogen bonds do exist between molecules of hydrogen fluoride. This is because hydrogen fluoride molecules are quite small and are very polar due to the high electronegativity difference of hydrogen and fluorine. As a result, the hydrogen end of each molecule is slightly positive while the fluoride end is slightly negative. The slightly positive hydrogen end of one molecule will be attracted to the slightly negative fluoride end of another molecule, thus forming a hydrogen bond.


A water molecule is formed by two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom which, when bonded, forms a polar molecule. Oxygen has a higher electronegativity than hydrogen, creating this polarity. So, the oxygen end of a water molecule is slightly negative.


Water is a polar molecule. Slightly negative on the oxygen end and slightly positive on the hydrogen end. This allows water to become liquid, sticking molecule to molecule, at the temperature it does.


Yes it is. The oxygen (O) has a slightly negative charge and the hydrogen (H) have slightly positive charges. The shape of the molecule is angular.


The end with the two hydrogen atoms is positively charged. The oxygen end is negative.


Hydrogen atoms are slightly positive in a water molecule while oxygen atoms are slightly negative. This is why electricity can flow through water.


Not entirely sure right now, about 75%, but I believe that the side of the water molecule with the two hydrogen atoms is slightly negative and the oxygen atom side is slightly positive.


It consists of a slightly negative oxygen atom and 2 slightly positive hydrogen atoms


water - having a slightly negative charge on the oxygen end and a slightly positive charge on the Hydrogen end.


Oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen. Hence the shared electron pair is slightly towards oxygen (than hydrogen) giving it slightly negative (charge).


An OH molecule is polar. Because the oxygen has a higher electronegativity, it will have the shared electron much more than the hydrogen. Therefore the oxygen end of the molecule will develop a slightly negative charge, and the hydrogen end a slightly negative one.


The hydrogen is slightly positive and the oxygen is slightly negative; being a polar molecule water is a very good solvent.


The hydrogen atoms in a water molecule carry a partial positive charge. Hydrogen is happy being a proton anyway. The oxygen atom is partially negative because oxygen is so electronegative. This leads to Hydrogen bonding.


Water molecules are polar. The hydrogen end of the molecule is slightly positive and the oxygen end is slightly negative. Because of this, the hydrogen end of one water molecule forms a weak bond with the oxygen end of another water molecule. These weak bonds are called hydrogen bonds.


H( slightly +) attracts Cl(-) Remember water is a polar molecule having a slightly positive end ( the hydrogen end ) and a slightly negative end ( the oxygen end ) because of of the difference in the atoms electronegativity.


Since water is a slightly polar molecule (the hydrogen end being slightly positive and the oxygen ends being slightly negative) the positively charged sodium ion (Na+) will be attracted to the oxygen end of the water molecule.


A molecule with an uneven distribution of charge is said to be a polar molecule. A polar molecule, because of an uneven distribution of charge, basically has an "end" that is slightly more positive and another that is slightly more negative. Let's look at an example.The water molecule is a good example of a polar molecule. It's oxygen end is a bit more negative, and the end with the pair of hydrogen atoms on it is slightly more positive. That gives the molecule an overall "endedness" with a positive and a negative end.


Oxygen is highly electronegative. When hydrogen forms a bond with oxygen, the oxygen atom has the ability to pull the electrons in the bond closer to itself causing the molecule to be polar. This means the hydrogen is slightly positive and the oxygen is slightly negative.


The slightly negative charge on the oxygen atom of one water molecule forms a weak electrostatic attraction between the slightly positive charge on a hydrogen atom of another water molecule. This is called a hydrogen bond. The hydrogen bonding between the water molecules is why water is highly cohesive.
