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.


Why are the oxygen end of a water molecule to the hydrogen end of another water molecule?

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.


In a water molecule which atom has a partial negative charge?

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


What is positively and negatively charged in a water molecule?

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


What causes the water molecule to have a negative charge?

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.


Which kind of elctrical charge if found on the oxygen atom of a polar water molecule?
