Polarity Worksheet

The physical property of compounds which relates other’s physical properties like melting point, boiling point, solubility and intermolecular interaction between molecules is known as polarity.

In this article you can find some questions related to polarity.

(a)    NH_3

(b)   H_2O

(c)    XXl_4

(d)   CO_2

(e)   c and d both


2. The correct order of dipole moment is:

(a)    H_2O > NH_3 > HF

(b)   HF > H_2O > NH_3

(c)    NH_3 > HF > H_2O

(d)   NH_3 > H_2O > HF


3. Which has maximum polarizing power here:

(a)    Mg^{+2}

(b)   Na^+

(c)    Al^{+3}
