- Water molecules contain two charged centers. As positive ions get close to water molecules, the oxygen becomes closer and the hydrogen moves away. Force of static electricity decreases as distance increases. This causes net attraction between water and ions.
- Coulomb's Law states: like charges repel and unlike charges attract. A water molecule can attract both negative and positive charges as it contains both a positive and a negative charge.
- Electrostatic force between two two subatomic particles is far greater than the gravitation force between the same two particles.
