4-20-17-Polarity Thursday, April 20, 2017 11:01 AM Ionic compounds have an electronegativity difference of 2 or greater Covalent compounds have an electronegativity difference between 0 and 2 Covalent polar compounds have an electronegativity difference between 0.4 and 2 ***THE ELECTRONEGATIVITY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN H AND C IS VERY LOW -we count that as a nonpolar bond C-H bonds are nonpolar *Look at picture on phone Practice Problems Use a polar arrow to indicate the polarity of each bond N--H, F--N, I--Cl Rank the following bonds in order of increasing polarity H--N, H--O, H--C *Look at picture on phone Molecular Polarity -To determine overall molecular polarity, you must look at individual bonds AND molecular geometry *Look at picture on phone Dipole Moments and Molecular Polarity Nonpolar 1. Two identical polar bonds pointing in opposite directions will cancel 2. Three identical polar bonds at 120 degrees from each other will cancel 3. Four identical polar bonds in a tetrahedral arrangement (109.5 degrees from each other) will cancel Polar 1. Two polar bonds with an angle of less than 180 between them will not cancel 2. Three polar bonds in a trigonal pyramidal arrangement (109.5 degrees) will not cancel *Lo
