A water molecule is composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom arranged in a bent shape. Since oxygen is significantly more electronegative than hydrogen, oxygen atoms have a much stronger attraction to shared electrons than does hydrogen. This unequal sharing of electrons and bent shape results in water being called a _________________ . A) polar molecule B) magnetic molecule C) ionic molecule D) covalent molecule
I can be wrong, but I think the answer is: This unequal sharing of electrons and bent shape results in water being called a A) polar molecule.
