🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Shepler's class at GT.

Solution: Water is known as a polar molecule because (check all apply)a. The oxygen and hydrogen atoms have the same electronegativity.b. The hydrogen atom attracts electrons much more strongly than the oxygen atom.c. Water has two hydrogen atoms covalently bonded to a single oxygen atom.d. The oxygen atom has a greater attraction for electrons than the hydrogen atom does.e. Water dipole moment is equal to zero.f. The electrons of the covalent bond are not shared equally between the hydrogen and oxygen atoms.

Problem

Water is known as a polar molecule because (check all apply)

a. The oxygen and hydrogen atoms have the same electronegativity.

b. The hydrogen atom attracts electrons much more strongly than the oxygen atom.

c. Water has two hydrogen atoms covalently bonded to a single oxygen atom.

d. The oxygen atom has a greater attraction for electrons than the hydrogen atom does.

e. Water dipole moment is equal to zero.

f. The electrons of the covalent bond are not shared equally between the hydrogen and oxygen atoms.
