  • Polarity of Molecules
    • Polar Molecules
      • The partial positive and partial negative charges are unbalanced
      • Use the trick: Polar bears are un-symmetrical
      • An example of a polar molecule is hydrogen fluoride
      • Polar molecules can also be identified as having a small difference in electro-negativity
    • Non-Polar Molecules
      • The partial positive and partial negative charges are balanced
      • An example of a non-polar molecule is carbon dioxide
      • Non-polar molecules can also be identified as having no difference in electro-negativity
