Solution: Which of these molecules would you expect to be polar: Cl 2, ICl, BF3, SO2?a. ICl and SO2b. Cl2 and BF3c. ICl and BF3d. BF3 and SO2

Solution: Which of these molecules would you expect to be polar: Cl 2, ICl, BF3, SO2?a. ICl and SO2b. Cl2 and BF3c. ICl and BF3d. BF3 and SO2

Problem

Which of these molecules would you expect to be polar: Cl 2, ICl, BF3, SO2?

a. ICl and SO2

b. Cl2 and BF3

c. ICl and BF3

d. BF3 and SO2

Solution

Now for Cl2we can see that it is only composed of 2 same atoms. This means there will be no difference in electronegativity and thus it will be NON-POLAR.
