The degree of polarity in the bond between a hydrogen atom and an oxygen atom in a molecule of water

NYC Chemistry Regents Exam Jan 2023


The degree of polarity in the bond between a hydrogen atom and an oxygen atom in a molecule of water can be assessed using the difference in (1) densities (2) electronegativities

(3) melting points (4) intermolecular forces


Solution: The degree of polarity of a bond is assessed by calculating the electronegativity difference between the two atoms that share the bond. Choice 2 is the correct answer choice.
