What is the result in a water molecule when the electrons spend more time around the oxygen atom than the hydrogen atom?


Water is a polar molecule, meaning that while the molecule is not actually charged, there are actually partial charges based on where the electrons spend more time. The partial negative charge of the oxygen means the electrons spend more time there.
