Solution: What type of bond joins the carbon atom to each of the hydrogen atoms?a. double (nonpolar) covalentb. single (nonpolar) covalentc. polar covalentd. ionice. hydrogen


What type of bond joins the carbon atom to each of the hydrogen atoms?

a. double (nonpolar) covalent

b. single (nonpolar) covalent

c. polar covalent

d. ionic

e. hydrogen


We are asked to identify the type of bonds joining Carbon and Hydrogen (given an illustration).

Step 1: Inspect the molecule in terms of the type of elements involved and the number of bonds formed.

Step 2: Identify the type of bond.
