Textbook Problem

A(n) ________ substance repels water.

  1. a. acidic
  2. b. basic
  3. c. hydrophobic
  4. d. polar

Summary Introduction

Introduction: A water molecule is shaped like a ‘V’ and consists of an oxygen atom and two hydrogen atoms. Oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen, and the sharing bond electrons are more attracted toward oxygen. Hence, there are the two regions of partial negative charge on oxygen and a partial positive charge on each hydrogen atom. So, water is a polar molecule.
