Both hydrogen and oxygen exist as diatomic molecules. The usual interaction would be:
2H^2 + O^2 = 2H^2O
Water is the most usual way hydrogen and oxygen combine but there are other compounds.
H^2O hydrogen peroxide H^3O hydronium OH hydroxide
Hydronium and hydroxide exist as the positive and negative ions of water. Hydronium is responsible for acidity and pH is actually an inverse measure of the amount of hydronium ions in a solution.
That would be the chemical composition? When talking about water properties you can refer to the states of matter (ice, water, liquid vapor and respective boiling points and freezing points), adhesion and cohesion, surface tension, capillary action, covalent bonds, it is tasteless and ordorless, it is a polar molecule with an electrical dipole moment, it is a good solvent, it is a poor conductor of electricity, etc etc...
yes the properties of h2o is two hydrogen and one oxygen u just reminded me of how much i used to enjoy balancing chemical equations in chemistry last year when i was a junior:]
thanks!!! i didnt really get what they meant by properties because we didnt really learn about chemistry stuff. we're suposed to be on biology
mmhm, 2 hydrogen, and 1 oxygen. they bound together to make a very useful element :D lava!
Yes volleyballchick is right
i meant water...sorry.
Yes i do believe so
