Problem: Consider the molecules SCl 2, F2, CS2, CF4, and BrCl.(a) Which has bonds that are the most polar?

FREE Expert Solution

We can identify the polarity of the bonds using the difference in electronegativity

We only observe one bond for each element. We are not looking for the polarity of the molecule but how polar the bonds are in the molecules.
