Polarization

Postby Kaleb Tesfaye 1I » Sun May 20, 2018 5:13 am

When we are trying to determine the polarization of a molecule, are we always dealing with cations/anions?

Polar molecules can be covalent as well. All that is needed to get polarity is/are more electronegative atom(s) pulling electrons to one region of a molecule. This is also shown by the dipole arrows on a diagram pointing in the same direction.

To determine the polarity of an atom the difference in electronegativity is an important component for example the more the difference in electronegativity the more polar it is. but they can be covalent as well.
