Is 03 a polar molecule?

No, O3 is not a polar molecule. It is a nonpolar molecule.

Is I3- polar or non-polar?

Non-polar. All elements that bond to themselves form non-polar bonds just like ozone (O3).

Is O3 polar or non polar?

Ozone is a polar molecule with a Bent molecular shape. This molecule does not form a triangle in that the stress on the bonds at that angle is too great.

Are O3 bonds polar or non-polar?

Nonpolar Bonds... Look at the Lewis dot diagram, just got checked right on a quiz answer for once.

Is I3 polar or nonpolar?

I believe it is non-polar as the electron configuration is trigonal bi-pyramidal with 180 degree bond angle between the two I-I bonds thus the vectors cancel out as well as the fact that I-I EN difference is 0. The other answer to this question citing O3 as non-polar is actually flawed as O3 is actually polar and is an exception to relying solely on EN difference to determine polarity as the vectors in O3 do not cancel out and because it is asymmetric it is actually polar with the negative area being above the central O atom.

What is a polar molecule composed entirely of non-polar bonds 1 sicl4 2 c2h4 3 cs2 4 bi3 5 o3?

O3. While O has the same electronegativity the different distrubutions of it within the three O's makes it polar. it has a non-olar bond because it is bondec to itself.

Why is o3 polar?

Ozone is polar because of the bonding arrangement. This molecule does not form a triangle in that the stress on the molecular bonds would be too great to keep the structure.

Examples of polar substances?

H20, Salt, HF, NH3 (slight polarity), O3, SO2, H2S...

Is an oxygen molecule a polar molecule?

Oxygen isn't a molecule, it's an atom. O2 (two oxygen atoms) on the other hand is a molecule. Most oxygen in the atmosphere is in the form O2. O3 is known as ozone, that stuff that protects us from harmful rays. O2 is not polar because it is two of the same atoms. O3 is polar because the three molecules line up in a slightly triangular formation.
