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


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


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


They are partial charges, making the water molecule polar. This occurs because the oxygen atom is more electronegative than the hydrogen atoms, and therefore holds the electrons more tightly than the hydrogen atoms. This gives the oxygen atom a partial negative charge and the hydrogen atoms a partial positive charge.


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


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.


Asymmetric distribution of electron is what causes atoms in a molecule to have regions of partial charge. This only happens in the zones that are within the distribution.


A polar molecule...such as water. The oxygen molecules pulls the electrons closer, causing the oxygen to have a more negative charge and the two hydrogen atoms to have more positive charges. this is very important in the bonding of water molecules to other water molecules.


A water molecule consists of one Oxygen atom and two Hydrogen atoms. There is a surplus of electrons on the Oxygen side of the molecule which leads to a partial negative charge near the the Oxygen atom and a partially positive charge near the Hydrogen atoms.


the unequal sharing of electrons between the the hydrogen and oxygen atoms in a molecule but why does water have a partial charge?


Ammonia is a highly polar molecule. The nitrogen atom in it has a partial negative charge while the hydrogen atoms have a partial positive charge. The oppositely charged ends of two ammonia atoms attract one another.


An atom or a molecule which has charge or a bond where the two atoms have partial charges.


Do to unequal distribution of electronic cloud between two atoms, the both atoms acquire a partial positive atoms, the both atoms acquire a partial positive and negative charge resperctively.


A polar bond is a covalent bond in which electrons are shared unevenly due to differences in the electronegativities of the bonded atoms, usually resulting in one atom having a partial negative charge and the other a partial positive charge. A polar molecule is a group of covalently bonded atoms that that has a partial negative at one end and a partial negative charge at the other because it contains at least one polar bond.


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.


The chemical formula for water is H2O, which can be represented structurally as H-O-H. The water molecule is held together by covalent bonds between the hydrogen and oxygen atoms. The water molecule is bent, so that the hydrogen atoms are at one pole of the molecule, and the oxygen atom is at the opposite pole. Because oxygen has a higher electronegativity than hydrogen, the shared electrons are held more tightly by the oxygen atom, giving it a partial negative charge, and the hydrogen atoms have a partial positive charge, therefore the molecule is polar. Refer to the related links for an illustration of a water molecule. The little d-like symbols are the Greek letter delta, and means partial. So d+ means a partially positive charge.


In a water molecule, the oxygen atom exerts a stronger pull on the electrons than the hydrogen atoms do. As a result the oxygen carries a partial negative charge and the hydrogen a partial positive charge. This results in what is called a polar molecule. The positive end of one molecule will attract the negative end of another and vice versa. As a result water molecules will cling to each other in a similar manner to magnets.


Water has two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. The hydrogen atoms have partial positive charges and the oxygen atom has a partial negative charge.


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 is a "polar" molecule, meaning that there is an uneven distribution of electron density. Water has a partial negative charge () near the oxygen atom due the unshared pairs of electrons, and partial positive charges () near the hydrogen atoms. An electrostatic attraction between the partial positive charge near the hydrogen atoms and the partial negative charge near the oxygen results in the formation of a hydrogen bond. The ability of ions and other molecules to dissolve in water is due to polarity. For example, sodium chloride in its crystalline form will dissolve in water.


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).


Yes, and the hydrogen atoms carry a slight positive charge.


Water molecule has a structure like this: H-O-H Here, one oxygen atom forms a covalent bond with each of the hydrogen atoms. However, oxygen being more electronegative, it has a tendency to pull the bond pair of electrons towards itself developing a partial negative charge on oxygen atom and a partial positive charge on each of the hydrogen atoms. Thus, it can be said that water molecule is polar in nature.


I'm assuming you mean when they're bonded to each other - oxygen is more electronegative, so it will have a partial negative charge, and hydrogen will have a partial positive charge.


A polar molecule is made up of 2 or more atoms covalently bonded to each other, where one atom is more electronegative than the other. This causes unequal sharing of electrons; the electrons are pulled slightly closer to the more electronegative atom, inducing a partial negative charge on it and a partial positive charge on the other (less electronegative) atom.
