Solution: Classify these molecules as polar or nonpolar.CH3ClCCl4HFBCl3H2OH2

Problem

Classify these molecules as polar or nonpolar.

CH3Cl

CCl4

HF

BCl3

H2O

H2

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the polarity of the molecule/s 


To do so, we first need to do the following steps:

Step 1: Determine the central atom in the molecule.

Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.

Step 3: Draw the Lewis structure for the molecule.

Step 4: Draw dipole arrows for each bond.

Step 5: Determine the polarity of the molecule.
