Is ICl3 polar or nonpolar?
its T-shaped, So if we take the vectors of the right and left side , both of them will cancel ,eventually you will be left out with the downward vector which wont cancel. So the sum will be >0 therefore, Its Polar ...

What is ICl3?
ICL3 Is an interhalogenic molekule which is the only one that is not a Fluoride (all other interhalogenic bonds are fluorids). According to VSEPR it has a T-shape that is derived from a Tetraeder. The Chlor Atoms are on "the end" of the T and the Iodine is in the middle. You have a look here http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/VSEPR-Modell CLF3 is isoelectronic to ICL3 As for the usage I only anything, but ICl is used as a fluorine agent. ...

What is the expected hybridization of the central atom of ICl3?
In icl3 central atom is iodine and its valency is 7 out of 7 electrons 3 electrons are in chemical bonding so 2 lone pairs are there. Hybridization = number of sigma bonds + number of lone pairs = 3 sigma bonds + 2 lone pairs = 5 = sp3d ( 1 s + 3 P + 1 d = 5 ). ...
What are 25.4 g of iodine and 14.2 g of cl made to react completely to yield a mixture of icl and icl3 cal the no of moles of icl and icl3?
I2 + 2Cl2 .==> ICl + ICl3 molar mass of I2 = 127 molar mass of Cl2 = 70.9 moles of I2 used = 25.4/127 = 0.2 moles of I2 moles of Cl2 used = 14.2/70.9 = 0.2 moles of Cl2 Since the stoichiometry indicates that each mole of I2 reacts with 2 moles of Cl2 to give 1 mole each of ICl and ICl3, you should get 0.1 moles of each product. The reason you don't get 0.2 moles is because the...
