(Polar molecules, Non-polar molecules, etc.)
3 posts • Page 1 of 1
On the midterm there was a question on the bond type (polar, non polar, or ionic) of some molecules, and SiO2 was one of them. When you draw the structure it looks like it should be the oxygens flanking the silicon atom and both with double bonds connecting them. There are no lone pairs on the Si and theres a total of 16 e's, so I put the molecule is non polar and I got it wrong. Which means it must be polar, but how/why?
