A molecule must be nonpolar if the molecule

October 3, 2017

A molecule must be nonpolar if the molecule

(1) is linear
(2) is neutral
(3) has ionic and covalent bonding
(4) has a symmetrical charge distribution 

 

Answer and Explanation:

 A molecule is considered to be non polar when the charge is symmetrically distributed in it or when there is an equal sharing of electrons between the two atoms of a diatomic molecule . Examples of non polar molecules are : O2, CH4, CCl4. In these molecules, central atom is surrounded by the same elements like Carbon with four hydrogens. Oftentimes, non polar molecules have polar bonds like CH4.  Answer (4) has a symmetrical charge distribution is the correct answer choice.
