what best describes the polarity of SF4Cl2? polar, nonpolar, or depends on atom arrangement?

3 Answers

  • depends on atom arrangement or non polar as all sides of the tetrahedal molecule would be delta negative

  • Depends on atom arrangement. The shape of the molecule is approximately octahedral, so if the two Cl atoms point in opposite directions, all dipoles will cancel out. If they are next to each other, there will be a net dipole since the S-F bond is more polar than the S-Cl bond.

  • Depending on the arrangement, it could be polar or nonpolar.
