DO NOW Pick up notes. Get out Molecular Geometry sheet from yesterday. VSEPR TABLE

Look on the back of your Molecular Geometry worksheet PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE MOLECULAR POLARITY

This is a result of bond dipoles (areas of unequal polarity) that do not cancel each other out. This is the polarity of the MOLECULE not the BOND. For molecular polarity, the shape of the molecule must be considered.

REMINDER This is not BOND polarity. You can determine the polarity of BONDS by determining the electronegativity differences of the two atoms involved.

C C nonpolar covalent diff = 0 Na F ionic diff = 3.05 O - H polar covalent diff = 1.14 MOLECULAR POLARITY Take

those same molecules and the polarity of the molecule will depend on the whole molecule, not just the bond. C C nonpolar equal sharing Na F polar unequal sharing C - H polar unequal sharing For a molecule, you must consider the shape and the terminal atoms.

MOLECULAR POLARITY LINEAR If the terminal atoms are the same, there are equal forces, so it is NONPOLAR. If they are not the same, it is POLAR. BeF2 nonpolar HCl - polar

MOLECULAR POLARITY TRIGONAL PLANAR If the terminal atoms are the same, there are equal forces, so it is NONPOLAR. If they are not the same, it is POLAR. BCl3 nonpolar BHCl2

- polar MOLECULAR POLARITY TETRAHEDRAL If the terminal atoms are the same, there are equal forces, so it is NONPOLAR. If they are not the same, it is POLAR. CCl4 nonpolar CHCl3

- polar MOLECULAR POLARITY PYRAMIDAL Because of the unshared pair, there are unequal forces, so the molecule is POLAR. NH3

MOLECULAR POLARITY BENT Because of the two unshared pairs, there are unequal forces, so the molecule is POLAR. H2O MOLECULAR POLARITY

SUMMARY NONPOLAR POLAR NONPOLAR

POLAR NONPOLAR POLAR POLAR POLAR

POLAR POLAR What is the Molecular Polarity for these molecules? Molecular Polarity

REMEMBER! To determine BOND POLARITY, calculate the electronegativity differences. To determine MOLECULAR POLARITY, look at the shape of the molecule and

the terminal atoms. TRY THIS Molecule Formula AlH3 PH3 CS2
