Water is known as a polar molecule because the oxygen atom has a greater attraction for electrons than the hydrogen atom does. Oxygen is more electronegative than that of hydrogen creating a partial charges with the hydrogen and oxygen atoms. Also, the electrons of the covalent bond are not shared equally between the hydrogen and oxygen atoms making it polar.
