Homework Statement


Why is it that when a charged object is near a stream of water (polar), it causes the stream to bend towards the object (attraction) instead of bend away (repulsion)? I know why the water bends, but why does it not REPEL instead?

N/A just an explanation is needed

I did some research and it has something to do with electrostatic force which I don't understand.

Thanks!
