🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Gower's class at UF.
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
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.
