(Polar molecules, Non-polar molecules, etc.)
4 posts • Page 1 of 1
Polarity depends on the molecule. If the molecule has a symmetric shape and the dipoles cancel out then even molecules with lone pairs can be non polar. For example, another example of a non polar shape is square planar with four bonded atoms and two lone pairs of electron. But even symmetric shapes can be polar if the dipoles don't cancel out.
