Question:

How would you know if a molecule is polar or non-polar? What does polarity do?

Inactive
Kieu L.
Answer:

In order to be "polar", a molecule must satisfy 2 conditions: have at least 1 polar bond and its geometry is non symmetrical. The polarity of a molecule will affect the intermolecular forces between atoms in a substance. The strength of the forces will determine some characteristics of the substance including boiling temperature, melting temperature or water solubility.
