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

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

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


Which water molecule has a partial positive charge?

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


What type of charge does a water molecule have?

A water molecule has both negative and positive charges.


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.


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.


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 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.

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).
