Problem: Choose the bond below that is least polar.A. C-FB. C-IC, P-FD. C-Cl

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the least polar bond among the given choices. A covalent bond is formed by the sharing of electrons by two non-metals.

Recall that for a covalent bond to be:

• Polar: electronegativity difference must be greater than 0.5

• Non-polar: electronegativity difference must be less than 0.5

The higher the electronegativity difference, the more polar a bond is.
