• In the water molecule, the oxygen and hydrogen atoms share electrons in covalent bonds. • There are a total of 10 protons and 10 electrons so the water molecule is neutral. • The electron cloud model shows that electrons are not shared equally in the water molecule. • Electrons are a bit more attracted to the oxygen atom than they are to the hydrogen atoms. • This makes the water molecule slightly negative at the oxygen end and slightly positive at the hydrogen end.
