- Partial Charge
When is a molecule polar? Change the electronegativity of atoms in a molecule to see how it affects polarity. See how the molecule behaves in an electric field. Change the bond angle to see how shape affects polarity.
Sample Learning Goals
- Predict bond polarity using electronegativity values
- Indicate polarity with a polar arrow or partial charges
- Rank bonds in order of polarity
- Predict molecular polarity using bond polarity and molecular shape
