Why isn’t water inflammable? It is made of flammable chemicals which are hydrogen and oxygen.

This is a best example to share when we talk about chemical change, that the products have totally different properties from that of the reactants , from which they are made. Now coming to the answer, Formation of water is a highly exothermic type of reaction and a lot of energy is lost at the

How many oxygen atoms are there in 90g of H2O molecule?

1 molecule of H2O has 1 atom of oxygen. Firstly we will calculate the number of atoms in 90g of H2O. we will explain it in two steps:- Step I:- No.of moles of H2O = given mass / molar mass No. of moles = 90/18 = 5 moles No. Of molecules = No. of moles

The second electron affinity of oxygen is positive, what does that mean?

Electron affinity is the amount of energy change during the addition of an electron to an isolated gaseous atom. It can be positive as well as negative. Negative electron affinity means that the energy is released during the addition of electron. Which is a favorable condition for gaining an electron. But positive value means that
