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



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.


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


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


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


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.


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.


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


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.


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.



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


Both. It is slightly negative from one side and slightly positive from the other.


Hydrogen atoms are slightly possitive.


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.


one end of the molecule has a slightly negative charge and the other a slightly positive charge.


The hydrogen bonds that form between water molecules. A slightly positive hydrogen in one water molecule will form weak hydrogen bonds with the slightly positive oxygen on another water molecule.


a molecule having slightly negative and positive ends with regard to change


Water, H2O, is a polar molecule in which the larger, more electronegative oxygen atom develops a partial negative charge, and the smaller, less electronegative hydrogen atoms develop a partial positive charge. The slightly negative oxygen atom of one water molecule is attracted to the slightly positive hydrogen atom of another water molecule. This weak attraction is called a hydrogen bond. Click on the related link for an illustration of the polar water molecule and hydrogen bonding between water molecules. The dashed lines represent the hydrogen bonds and the δ- represents a partial negative charge, and δ+ represents a partial positive charge.


In one water molecule, you have the slightly negatively charged oxygen side, and then you have the slightly positive hydrogen end. Because of this, the negative oxygen attracts positive hydrogens and vice versa in separate water molecules. This is where the hydrogen bonds are made.


In a molecule of methane, the hydrogen atoms are slightly more positive on average than the carbon atom, but these are only moderately polar covalent bonds, not ionic ones.
