Summary:

What is the orientation of polar molecules at a solid-vacuum boundary

Main Question or Discussion Point

Assuming a completely clean and flat solid surface (metal and amorphous carbon as examples).
The surrounding vacuum is contaminated with water vapour at very low pressure.
In what orientation would the water molecules adsorb to the solid surface?
