How many "central" atoms are part of ethylene glycol, a component of antifreeze? What are teh molecular geometries of each central atom? Is the molecule polar or non-polar? Why? 

5. How many "central" atoms are part of ethylene glycol (HOCH2CH2OH), a component of antifreeze? What are
the molecular geometries of each central atom? Is the molecule polar or nonpolar? Why? (Note: the modeling
kits technically only contain one carbon and one oxygen via color coding, however, in this example, oiner
spheres can be used to represent these elements within this molecule... why?)
