Unformatted text preview: : 5. Consider the chemical bond. A chemical bond is formed when two atoms share electrons. What does it mean if a chemical bond is polar? 6. Consider the chemical bond. What does it mean if a chemical bond is nonpolar? 7. By drawing the complete Lewis structure with the correct molecular shape, determine whether CS 2 or OF 2 will be a polar compound. 8. Consider a simple molecule. What does it mean when a molecule is nonpolar? (Think about the models you built in class)....
