PROBLEM 97P

Write the Lewis structure for OCCl2 (carbon is central) and determine whether the molecule is polar. Draw the three-dimensional structure of the molecule.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 97P

lewis structure:

                                  O::C:CL

                                        :

                                        CL

COCl2 is a polar molecule because the dipole between the carbon and the chlorine atoms is not equal to the dipole between the carbon and oxygen atoms.

Molecules are only non-polar if they contain no polar bonds or if the partial charges cancel out each other.

To determine if a molecule is polar, it is important to first analyze all the bonds.

In COCl2 all three of the bonds have dipoles because the electronegativity of oxygen,...
