Solution: Which formula represents a nonpolar molecule?a. NH3b. H2Sc. CH4d. HCl

Solution: Which formula represents a nonpolar molecule?a. NH3b. H2Sc. CH4d. HCl

Problem

Which formula represents a nonpolar molecule?

a. NH3

b. H2S

c. CH4

d. HCl

Solution

The question asks us to choose the molecule that is not polar. Now we take a look at each one. 

a. NH3

We draw the Lewis structure first to see it's characteristics to know whether it is polar or not.
