Given the electronegativities below, which of the following covalent single bonds is the most polar?
Element: H C N O
Electronegativity 2.1 2.5 3.0 3.5

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

Covalent bond is the bond formed between two atoms due to mutual sharing of electron between them.


Polar bond means in any bond, formation of dipole due to difference in the electronegative value of the two atoms. More electronegative elements pull electron toward itself which ...
