Solution: The electronegativity of Si is 1.8. The electronegativity of Br is 2.8. Therefore, a Br-Si bond is categorized as _______ . a. non-polar covalent b. metalloidic c. None of the above d. ionic e. polar covalent

Problem

The electronegativity of Si is 1.8. The electronegativity of Br is 2.8. Therefore, a Br-Si bond is categorized as _______ . 

a. non-polar covalent 

b. metalloidic 

c. None of the above 

d. ionic 

e. polar covalent

Solution

Using the electronegative values, categorize the bond between Br-Si.

Bonds can be classified by calculating the electronegative difference where:
