🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Carlon's class at UCB.

Solution: Which of the following bonds would you expect to be the most polar?a. P-Sb. C-Nc. O-Fd. N-Oe. C-O

Problem

Which of the following bonds would you expect to be the most polar?

a. P-S
b. C-N
c. O-F
d. N-O
e. C-O

Solution

We’re being asked to determine which bond is expected to be the most polar.


We will determine the difference between the electronegativity (ΔEN) of the atoms in each bond. Recall that the greater the electronegativity difference the more polar the bond.

↑ΔEN = ↑ polar

We will refer to the periodic table to get the electronegativity for each atom.


Calculate for ΔEN of each bond
