HW# 2E.28

Postby Jessica Tejero 3L » Sun Nov 17, 2019 7:27 pm

Hi could anyone help with approaching this problem
Predict whether each of the following molecules is likely to
be polar or nonpolar: (a) CH3SH (methanethiol, found in breath
odor and skunks); (b) CH3NH2 (methylamine, a drug precursor);
(c) CH3OCH3 (dimethyl ether, used as an aerosol propellant).

All three are polar. CH3SH is nonsymmetrical as is ch3nh2. CH3OCH3 is also nonsymmtrical because the O has two lone pairs resulting in a bent shape
