Would Na and F form a polar covalent bond?

No, they would form an ionic bond.


Would H and S perform a polar covalent bond?

Yes. Sulfur (S) and hydrogen (H) will form a polar covalent bond.


Does fluorine form a covalent bond with oxygen?

Yes. They form a polar covalent bond.


Would H and H form polar covalent bonds?

No, there is no difference so it would be a non-polar covalent bond that is formed.


Would N and F form a polar covalent bond?

The electronegativities of nitrogen and fluorine are considerably different. Therefore they make a polar covalent bond.



Will N and F form a covalent bond?

Yes, they form a polar covalent bond e.g. in NF3


Can nitrogen and fluorine form a covalent bond?

Yes, nitrogen and fluorine can form a covalent bond. The bond will be very polar.





Does fluorine and oxygen form an ionic bond?

No. they form a polar covalent bond.


What type of covalent bond is ZnCl2?

Polar covalent, for the anhydrous form.


A covalent bond is most likely to be polar when?

A covalent bond is most likely to be polar when there is a large difference in the electronegativity of the two atoms that form the bond.


When is a covalent bond most likely to be polar?

A covalent bond is most likely to be polar when there is a large difference in the electronegativity of the two atoms that form the bond.


What is the difference between polar covalent bond and a non polar covalent bond?

In a non polar covalent bond, the electrons that form the bond are equally attracted to each of the two nuclei that are bonded. In a polar covalent bond, the electrons that form the bond are more attracted to one of the two nuclei that are bonded than to the other. This uneven distribution of electric charge within the bond gives molecules with polar covalent bonds a permanent electrical dipole moment.


What type of bond will form between CL and BR?

Those 2 atoms would form a non-polar covalent bond because their electronegativity difference is .2. When this difference is less than .5 the bond is non-polar covalent.



Do O and O form polar covalent bonds?

No, the bond is covalent, but as the atoms are identical, it is non-polar.


Would K and Cl form a polar covalent bond?

No, due to the difference in the electronegativities of potassium and chloride it would be a ionic bond



What element is a polar covalent bond?

No single element can form a bond. Only 2 or more elements can form bonds. Polar bonds occur when there is a dipole moment, or there is asymmetry in the structure. For example, HF forms a polar covalent bond.



What type of bond will form between Ca and S?

It forms a Polar Covalent bond


What type of bond does Cu and Cl form?

It forms a non polar covalent bond.
