A water molecule consists of an oxygen atom and two hydrogen atoms. Oxygen has a mass of 16 atomic units (u) and each hydrogen has a mass of 1 u. The hydrogen atoms are each at an average distance of 96 pm ( 96 x 10 -12 m) from the oxygen atom, and are separated from one another by an angle of 104.5o.
