Solution: Which of the following compounds are polar:a. CBr4, XeF2, SCl4, BrF3, CH3OHb. XeF2, SCl4, BrF3, CH3OH onlyc. BrF3, CH3OH only d. SCl4, BrF3, CH3OH only

Solution: Which of the following compounds are polar:a. CBr4, XeF2, SCl4, BrF3, CH3OHb. XeF2, SCl4, BrF3, CH3OH onlyc. BrF3, CH3OH only d. SCl4, BrF3, CH3OH only

Problem

Which of the following compounds are polar:

a. CBr4, XeF2, SCl4, BrF3, CH3OH

b. XeF2, SCl4, BrF3, CH3OH only

c. BrF3, CH3OH only 

d. SCl4, BrF3, CH3OH only


Solution

We’re being asked to determine the polar molecule/s among the choices.


To do so, we first need to do the following steps:

Step 1: Determine the central atom in the molecule.

Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.

Step 3: Draw the Lewis structure for the molecule.

Step 4: Draw dipole arrows for each bond.

Step 5: Determine the polarity of the molecule.
