Is laughing gas a polar or covalent bond?
It is polar
There is no general answer to this question: One of the strongest of covalent bonds is that between two nitrogen atoms in a nitrogen molecule, which is non polar covalent. In contrast, a carbon-carbon single bond, also usually non polar covalent, is relatively weak. The polar covalent bond between hydrogen and fluorine in the gas phase is very strong, while a hydrogen-iodine bond is relatively weak.
Polar covalent and non-polar covalent bonds are similar in the fact that both bonds can ONLY occur between two non-metals. They are different in the fact that non-polar bonding can only occur between particles of the same element because a non-polar bond is when two non-metals bond with an equal pull for electrons which can only occur between particles of the same element which have the same electronegativity and number of one, valence electrons and…
What type of bond ionic or molecular and polar or non polar is sodium iodide and carbon dioxide and hydrogen gas?
H2O, or water, is held together by polar covalent bonds. Covalent bonds are defined as a sharing of pairs of electrons between atoms. Ionic bonds are defined as a bond between metal and non-metal ions. There is no metal ion in an H2O compound because Hydrogen is a gas and Oxygen is a non-metal, so it cannot be an ionic bond.
The pure elements hydrogen and chlorine react to form a molecular compound, hydrogen chloride, with a polar covalent bond, that is a gas at standard temperature and pressure. Hydrogen chloride is highly soluble in water, and when dissolved in water, it largely ionizes into chloride anions and hydrogen containing cations. Such a solution in water is often called "hydrochloric acid".
How are the electronegativity values used to determine the type of bond that exists between two atoms?
Electronegativity is the ability of an atom to attract electrons (or electron density) to itself. The bonds you're talking about are ionic, polar covalent and pure covalent. In ionic bonds one atom (the anion) hogs the electrons, so the higher the difference in EN the more likely it is ionic. Salts, eg NaCl, are ionic. In pure covalent bonds the electrons shared are shared equally between the two atoms. The smaller the difference in EN…
Salt is not a covalent bond. A covalent bond is a bond between two gases, table salts chemical name is NaCl. Na is sodium which is a solid, and chlorine is a gas to salt would contain a ionic bond A salt in chemistry can be defined as an ionic compound that can be produced when neutralizing an acid. within (compound) cation or anion of salts may be covalent bonds as in Ammonium ion and…
The two oxygen atoms forming molecules of oxygen gas that you breathe are joined by a polar Covalent bond Explain why this statement is true or false?
Just one. Fluorine has 7 electrons in its outermost shell so sharing an electon with another atom in a covalent bond takes its shell up to 8, the noble gas configuration. The covalent bonds that luorine forms are generally highly polar because of fluorines high electronegativity. This is an example of the "octet" rule.
If Hydrogen gas is chemically combined with Chlorine gas, Hydrogen chloride is formed: H2 (g) + Cl2 (g) ---> 2 HCl (g) The bond is covalent (the atoms share electrons) and polar (Chlorine is more electronegative). Hydrogen chloride gas will dissolve in water and disassociate into ions: HCl ---> H+ (aq) + Cl- (aq)
