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...

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. ...
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. ...

What kind of intermolecular forces are present in O3?
O3 is a nonpolar molecule and it does not contain a hydrogen bond. This leaves dispersion forces as the intermolecular force present in O3. ...
