|Exercise: Hybrid Molecular Orbitals||
Determine the hybrid molecular orbital type, molecular shapes, bond type(s) and polarities for the covalent molecules below. You may want to make Lewis Structures first in order to determine the steric numbers for each molecule. A Periodic Table is provided with Hi (red), Lo (gray) and Intermediate (green) Electronegativities indicated to aid in predicting polarity.
- Formaldehyde is polar as shown with the dipole arrow:
