### 25.d

Hello, why would this molecule in problem 25.d be polar?

After sulfur forms bonds with each of the fluorine, it still has a lone pair left. The side with the lone pair has a slightly negative charge, thee other side has a slightly positive charge. So SF4 is polar.

The shape of SCl4 is trigonal bipyramid. Therefore, by drawing the VSEPR shape, we see that the dipole moments do not cancel out.
