I like the human example better than the general Wikipedia, so here goes the question: We all know water is polar yes? Meaning the Oxygen nucleus attracts the electrons more than the Hydrogen nuclei. So my question being, if you could in theory increase that attraction, make that attraction stronger, enough so that the oxygen has a complete grip on those electrons, and probably enough to repel the Hydrogen protons, what would happen? Would the Hydrogens stay at all costs with it's electrons, or would it simply leave? And then what would the oxygen atom which would be stable wouldn't it? If this seems an obvious question, my defense is that I come from a school where knowing what a proton is, gets you an A.
