Water is a polar molecule, and polarity occurs when the electrons in molecules are not spread evenly. This causes on end of the molecule to be negative, while the other is positive. More »

The polarity of water is the net result of the overall negative charge of the oxygen atom and the overall positive charges of the two hydrogen atoms. The outcome is a difference in charge, or polarity, from one end of th... More »

Polarity is a physical property of compounds which relate to other physical properties, such as melting and boiling points or solubility. Bond polarities arise from bonds between atoms of different electronegativity. A m... More »

A polar molecule is characterized by the uneven distribution of the electrons that form the covalent bonds between each atom in the molecule, resulting in a slightly positively charged side and a slightly negatively char... More »

Acetone is considered a polar molecule because it contains an imbalance of electrons. Acetone shares some properties with nonpolar molecules, such as being water soluble. More »

The attractive forces that hold the molecules of a liquid together are always the result of opposite charges from the opposite ends of polar molecules, although that polarity is not always inherent to the molecules invol... More »

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the polarity of water, due to hydrogen bonding, is responsible for its cohesive and adhesive properties. The positive charge on the hydrogen atom and negative charge on the oxygen... More »
