Polarity of CH2Cl2?
Yes CH2Cl2 is polar because its molecular structure is not symmetrical. Since Hydrogen is less electronegative than cl there is polarity in the compound.
ccl4 will dissolve better in water because likes dissolves likes, H2O is non-polar an CCL4 is also non polar where as ch2cl2 is polar(different to water) there for it wont dissolve in water but CCL4 will ^^This is not true: water is polar. Therefore, since CCl4 is non-polar, and CH2Cl2 is polar, and like dissolves like, CH2Cl2 is more soluble.
In the extraction of tea with methylene chloride and water will methylene chloride be the upper or lower level?
How does a drawing of polarity water and the bond polarities make a major contribution to the overall molecular polarity look?
The polarity is a vector quantity. The resultant of the polarity of bonds determines the polarity of the molecule. In CO2 there is polarity between the two C-O but the polarity is equal and opposite in direction so CO2 doesn't have polarity. If the polarity of bonds is not cancelled then the polarity remains in the molecule.
bond polarity is the polarity particular bond within a molecule, while molecular polarity is the polarity of the whole molecule. take for example water (H20): you could find the bond polarity of each H-0 bond (polar covalent), or the polarity of the whole molecule together (polar, because the electronegativity of oxygen is higher than the hydrogen atoms)
You cannot 'reverse' the polarity of a transformer -it is either wound with 'additive polarity' or 'subtractive polarity', and there's not much you can do about it! For a single transformer, its polarity doesn't really matter. But if you are going to parallel two transformers, then you must know the polarity of each transformer in order to avoid harmful circulating currents in their secondary windings.
