Of the molecules hf and hcl. which has bonds that are more polar?

Part B Of the molecules HF and HCl, which has bonds that are more polar? View Available Hint(s) HF HCl Submit Part C Both of the sulfur-chlorine single bonds in SCl2 are polar. In which direction should the polarity arrows point? to the right to the left toward the central sulfur atom away from the central sulfur atom Submit Request Answer

Answer

HF bond is more polar. The electronegativity of fluorine is higher than that of chlorine, hence the HF bond is more polar than HCl bond. Direction of polarity in SCl2 bonds : Away from the central sulfur atom

Chlorine is more electronegative than sulfur. So chlorine pulls the electrons towards itself in the S-Cl bond. So the polarity would be towards chlorine and away from sulfur.
