Hydrogen chloride is non polar because in molecules such as (hcl) the electron pair of bond is pulled closer to more electroneative chlorine atom.As a result of this the chlorine atom develops a tiny negative charge,where as the hydrogen atom develops a tiny positive charge.The hydrogen chloride molecule has a slight separation of charge within it and describe as a polar molecule

Polar as the 'chloride' part (Cl) is far more electronegative than the hydrogen (H), creating a delta positive dipole on the hydrogen and a delta negative dipole on the chlorine.

Water is a polar molecule and hexane is non-polar. This means that water has positive charges that grab on to the negative-chlorine and water has negative charges that grab onto the positive-hydrogen. This pulls the hydrogen and chlorine apart as positive and negative ions. The these positive and negative ions can move around separately as positive and negative electrical carriers. In hexane the hydrogen and chlorine are locked together, a single neutral molecule and no charged ions. Any positive movement of the hydrogen is locked to the negative movement of the chlorine, so any movement balances out to zero charge movement and zero electrical movement.

Water and hydrogen chloride are both polar compounds (which is to say, the molecule has both positive and negative poles) but water is more polar than hydrogen chloride. Oxygen has a higher electronegativity than chlorine does, and consequently, there is a greater difference in electronegativity between oxygen and hydrogen than there is between chlorine and hydrogen. Consequently, there is a greater concentration of electrons at the oxygen atom than at the chlorine atom in these two molecules. Polarity then leads to attraction between molecules (which align themselves so that negative poles can attract positive poles) and greater attraction between molecules will result in a higher boiling point.

The atom is neutral; the ion chloride is negative.

Chlorine does not. The chloride ion is negatively charged.

Methyl Chloride is sp^3 hybridized so it is tetrahedral, thus giving chlorine a partial negative charge and gives the overall molecule a downward dipole

chlorine is the element chloride is the name of it's ion with a charge of only negative 1

Because hydrogen and chlorine have a difference of electronegativity 0.9, chlorine is more electronegative so shared electron pair is more closer to chlorine and it acquires partially negative charge.

Chlorine gains an electron and becomes negative 1 charge. Hydrogen donates an electron so becomes positive 1 charge.

No reaction will occur. The hydrogen can neither replace the zinc and become positive (because zinc is higher than hydrogen on the activity series of metals) nor replace the chlorine and become negative (because chlorine has a higher electronegativity and ionization energy than hydrogen). (If you didn't already know and need to know, the formula for zinc chloride is ZnCl2.)

It is a type of attraction between the positive end of a polar molecule and the negative end of another polar molecule.Molecules like HCl are made up of elements with vastly different electronegativities, Chlorine being extremely electronegative and Hydrogen being much, much less electronegative. Highly electronegative elements like Chlorine pull electrons shared in their covalent bonds much harder toward their nucleus and away from the other atom's. This means that the electron (which is negatively charged) will be closer to the Chlorine atom than the Hydrogen atom, creating a negative charge on the Chlorine side of the molecule and a positive charge on the Hydrogen side, making HCl a polar molecule. When near other polar molecules, the positive hydrogen side will attracted to their negative ends and the negative Chlorine side will be attracted to their positive ends, which is a dipole interaction

Chloride or Cl- is the anion (Negative ion) formed by a single chlorine atom that gains an extra electron.

Cl2 is the diatomic molecule of chlorine (Cl) . It has 14 valence electrons, 7 in each atom. When chlorine forms a chloride ion, an atom accepts an electron and becomes Cl- (negative ion).

chloride ions have a negative charge... hydrogen ions have a positive charge... positive and negative means attraction

No, the hydrogen atoms in a water molecule carry a partial positive charge. The oxygen atom is partially negative.

Chlorine is the name of the 17th element. In its pure form it is a toxic green gas. Chloride is the ion formed when chlorine gains an electron, giving it a negative charge or otherwise refers to compound in which chlorine is in its 1- oxidation state (e.g. methyl chloride).

A sodium atom has one electron outside a closed shell, and a chlorine atom lacks one electron to fill a shell. A sodium chloride molecule forms by ionic bonding, the ionization of sodium and chlorine atoms and the attraction of the resulting positive and negative ions.

The chloride becomes Cl-1 . When an ion is negative, it becomes an anion (or A Negative ION).

When it gains an electron. It then becomes a negative ion.

The chloride ion has a negative charge of -1.
