Problem: Is IF4- polar or nonpolar?

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine if IF4- is polar or nonpolar


Step 1: I is the central atom


Step 2: The total number of valence electrons present in IF4- is:


                  Group             Valence Electrons

I                 7A                   1 × 7 e7 e

F                7A                   4 × 7 e28 e

Charge        -1                                     +1 e

                   Total:  36 valence e
