Is H3O+ nonpolar or polar?
Is CHCl3 polar or non-polar?
Answer: CH4 is nonpolar because all of the nonpolar covalent bonds are spaced within a tetrahedral structure around the molecule. CH4 contains nonpolar covalent bonds because the electronegativity difference between hydrogen (2.20) and carbon (2.55) is lower than .
Why CH4 is a non-polar molecule?
Ethylene (C2H4) is nonpolar in nature because of the symmetrical (linear) geometrical shape. Another reason is that the hydrogen-carbon bonds are nonpolar because of nearly the same electronegativity. As a result, the dipole of the molecule of Ethylene turns out to be zero.
CH4 is a nonpolar molecule as it has a symmetric tetrahedral geometrical shape with four identical C-H bonds. The electronegativity of carbon and hydrogen is 2.55 and 2.2, respectively, which causes the partial charges to be almost zero.
Is C2H2 polar?
Answer: H3O+ is a polar molecule due to the existence of a pair of lone pair electrons on top of the molecule causing electron-electron repulsion.
