i’ve a question about polar ??
what is meant by polar and non polar??
what is the difference between polar molecule and polar bond ??

tqvm… from eg5 2012..

Salam. Nice to hear from you EG5 🙂

The molecule is polar when it has an overall ‘dipole’ meaning the molecule as a whole has uneven charge distribution.

You can check to see if a molecule is polar by adding up the individual bond dipoles. These bond dipoles are vector quantities i.e. they have size and direction. They are added nose to tail. CO2 has polar bonds (O is more electronegative than C) but one polar bond cancels out the other polar C=O bond on the the opposite side of the molecule so CO2 is non-polar. H-F id polar. It only has one bond dipole (points towards the F atom).

Polar molecules have polar bonds which do not cancel out.
non-polar molecules have polar bonds which cancel or, non polar bonds (e.g. graphite, sulfur etc)

Does that help?
