BrCl does contain a covalent bond. It has a covalent bond because both elements are nonmetals, and the chlorine has more electronegativity than the bromine.


Bromine monochloride, BrCl


-1 for Cl and +1 for Br


There will be four peaks in the mass spectrum.


The molar mass of bromine chloride is 115,357 g.


BrCI is a covalent compound because it consists of two non-metals.


how many peaks are there in mass spectrum of BrCl


Yes, they form BrCl and BrCl3 . such compounds have covalent bonds and known as Interhalogens.


81Br37Cl=117.882 81Br35Cl= 115.885 79Br37Cl=115.884 79Br35Cl =113.887



BrCI is a molecular compound. It consists of two non-metals with negligible electronegativity difference.



While Im not particularly sure that reaction even happens, I guess one could figure it out none the less. If you have 2.74 mol of Cl2 you would expect to get 5.48 mol of BrCl. Because each Cl2 can make 2 BrCl so double the number of moles. Br has a molecular weight of 79.90 and Cl of 35.45 so together that's 115.35 Grams/mol. Since you have 5.48 mol all you have to do is multiply the two numbers together and cancel out the "mol" units to get 631.12 grams of BrCl... again which makes this reaction seem completely unrealistic.... what good is that much BrCl. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well, silly you need to balance it first and provide the equation~ So you probably have: Br2+Cl2=2BrCl correct? So you have 2.74mol Cl2, you need to find ___molBrCl 2.74molCl2 X (2molBrCl/1molCl2) = 5.48molBrCl


BrCI is covalent. Bromine and chlorine are both nonmetals and are covalently bonded to each other, meaning the electrons are shared equally between the atoms.


It is a polar molecule because although it's shape is linear, (which is a non-polar shape) the electro negativity is not the same between the two atoms. Therefore, the electrons are a little closer to Cl.


Chlorine and bromine form BrCl which is a diatomic reddish brown gas. The bond is covalent. The bond appears to be slightly polar as expected due to electronegativity dofference between Br and Cl


So you have 2.74mol Cl2, you need to find ___molBrCl 2.74molCl2 X (2molBrCl/1molCl2) = 5.48molBrCl Hope this helps! :]


four peaks because there are four different types of BrCl: (81)Br(37)Cl, (81)Br(25)Cl, (79)Br(37)Cl, (79)Br(25)Cl


Bromine monochloride is very slightly polar because the electronegativities of bromine and chlorine are not the same. Thus, the electron density is higher around the chlorine atom than the bromine atom. This means that an electron is more likely to be found on chlorine, making it slightly negative.


A hydrate has x molecules of water in its substance. BrCl(H2O)9, or BrClH18O9, has nine molecules of water, ennea- meaning nine as a prefix in chemistry. Please note: The ennea prefix has a Greek root, meaning 9. The Latin nona prefix is much more commonly used for 9 of something in chemistry.


maybe... Cl:Br (hard to draw... but additional 6 dots around each... Cl and Br) Br valence electrons=7 Cl valence electrons =7 total= 14 e- - 2 e- ( bond between Cl and Br) = 12 e- - 6 e- ( 6 dots around Cl to fill octet) = 6 e- - 6 e- ( 6dots around Br to fill octet) = 0 e- Fomal charges= (number of e- in valence shell of isolated atom)-(number of bonds to the atom+number of unshared e-) Formal charge Br= 7 - (1+6)= 0 Formal charge Cl= 7- (1+6)=0 Since Formal charge is 0 this is the preferred Lewis structure for the molecule (least amount of energy used... and molecules like it when they are using the lowest amount energy)
