Problem: Dinitrogen difluoride, N2F2, is the only stable, simple inorganic molecule with an N=N bond. It occurs in two forms: cis (both F atoms on the same side of the N=N bond) and  trans (the F atoms on opposite sides of the N=N bond).(b) Predict the direction of the molecular polarity, if any, of each form.
