Unformatted text preview: OR oxygen dichloride both are polar, but oxygen dichloride is less symmetric than nitrogen trichloride, making it more polar. 3) boron trihydride OR ammonia boron trihydride is nonpolar. 4) chlorine OR phosphorus trichloride chlorine is nonpolar 5) silicon dioxide OR carbon dioxide Its a tie, because both are nonpolar 6) methane OR CH 2 Cl 2 methane is nonpolar 7) silicon tetrabromide OR HCN silicon tetrabromide is nonpolar 8) nitrogen trifluoride OR phosphorus trifluoride Both are polar and equally symmetric, but the difference in electronegativity between N-F is less than that between P-F For chemistry help, visit www.chemfiesta.com 2007 Cavalcade Publishing; All Rights Reserved...
