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.


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.


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


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


Yes, and the hydrogen has a partial positive charge.


The hydrogen side has a partial positive charge.


The hydrogen atoms possess a partial positive charge, and the oxygen is the negative end.


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.



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.


The hydrogen atom of one water molecule, with its partial positive charge, is attracted to the oxygen atom of a neighboring water molecule, with its partial negative charge, forming a hydrogen bond.



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.


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.


Polar molecules have unequal distribution of electrons. Water for example, oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen so it will pull electrons towards itself, giving oxygen partial negative charge on it and partial positive charge on the hydrogen. A hydrogen bond forms between the partial negative charge on oxygen on another water molecule and partial positive charge on hydrogen on other water molecule.


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.


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.


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.


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


Polar molecules happen when there is an unequal sharing of electrons in a covalent bond. This leads to a partial positive change on one molecule and a partial negative charge on the other. An example of this is water (H2O). The hydrogens have partial positive charges and the oxygen has a partial negative charge.


APEX a negative charge thag exists because of covalent bond with hydrogen


hydrogen is partially positive and oxygen is partially negative so your answer is oxygen


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


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