What is the difference between the terms cis and trans?

Cis molecules are polar while trans molecules are nonpolar.

Cis molecules are polar since they have the same bonds on one side, which doesn't cancel out. Trans molecules are nonpolar since they have the same bonds on opposite sides, which cancel each other out.

Cis molecules are polar since the bonded atoms that are the same are next to each other. Trans molecules are nonpolar since the bonded atoms that are same are located opposite each other.

cis indicates that the functional groups are on the same side of the carbon chain while trans conveys that functional groups are on opposing sides of the carbon chain

In cis molecules, different side groups are on the same side. In trans molecules, the side groups are on opposite sides, like a trans plane. These exist in compounds with a double bond, which can't rotate.

Cis molecules would be polar and trans molecules are nonpolar.

cis have the same bonds on one side and trans have the same bonds on opposite sides. Cis would be polar since the bonds don't cancel out and trans would be non-polar.

Here is an example that shows how a cis molecule and a trans molecule look:

cis molecules have groups on the same side of the molecule, and trans molecules have groups on different sides of the molecule. usually, cis molecules are polar and trans molecules are nonpolar

The main distinction is that the cis- isomer is polar and the trans- is nonpolar

Cis molecules are polar while trans molecules are nonpolar because of the ligand positioning either on the same or opposite side.

Cis means same side and trans means opposite side, which also means that cis are typically polar charged because there is no cancellation of charges as opposed to trans.

Cis is when the atoms are on the same side causing a bend in the structure while for trans the atoms are on different sides making the structure straight.

The difference between the terms cis and trans is that cis means polar and trans means nonpolar.

Cis molecules are polar because the molecules are arranged in a way where the geometry does not cancel out. Trans molecules are nonpolar

cis molecules have geometry that does not cancel out which results in a polar arrangement. trans molecules are non polar

Cis is polar and Trans is non polar. If you draw the dipole moment, Cis does not cancel out while trans does even when they are resonance to each other.
