excited state EC of boron is 1s2 2s1 2px1 2py1. so it undergoes sp2 type of hybrydisation and has trigonal planar shape.

Is BF3 non polar covalent polar covalent or ionic bond?

BF3 has polar covalent bonds. It is planar and symmetric so the net dipole moment of the molecule is zero.

Why ammonia molecule is polar but BF3 is not?

NH3 is a 3D object (like an open umbrella) but BF3 is all on one plane in a triangle.In the second case the dipoles cancel each other

Why BF3 has zero dipole moment but PF3 has dipole moment?

BF3 is a Trigonal planar molecule due to presence of three electrons pairs around the Boron atom, due to symmetry in molecule the Dipole moment becomes zero, but PF3 is a Pyramidal molecule because along with three bonded electron pairs Phosphorus also have a lone pair of electrons, due to asymmetry in the molecule this molecule has a net Dipole moment.

Why dipol moment of bf3 is zero?

BF3 is a planar molecule with bond angle 120 0 . The bonds are polar but the bond dipoles cancel one another out - think of it as symmetry or vector addition or that they pull equally in opposite directions.

Why BF3 molecule show zero dipole moment?

It is a Trigonal planar molecule three 'F' atoms are arranged around the "B" atom at the angles of 120, due to symmetry in molecule the Dipole moment becomes zero.

What happen when BF3 converted to BF4 molecule?

Boron trifluoride BF3 reacts with F- ion to form the BF4- ion. BF3 has only 6 electrons around the B atom, is planar, and is a Lewis acid (as it will accept electrons from an electron pair donor such as F-. BF4- is a tetrahedral ion- all four bonds are equivalent.

What is molecular shape of BF3?

The shape of this molecule is Trigonal Planar. this is because it has no lone pairs of electrons so it maintains a 2D shape.

What is better BF3 or MW3 and why?

BF3 because i have both and BF3 is very realiastic, has many interactive objects like vehicles, the online is very nice. MW3 is almost cartoony compared to BF3 and MW3 is just like the other COD's and gets boring. its predictable. I like BF3 way more. :)
