A. there are nonpolar and polar bonds in the molecule and the molecule itself is polar
B. there are nonpolar and polar bonds in the molecule and the molecule itself is nonpolar
C. there are only nonpolar bonds in the molecule and the molecule is nonpolar
D. there are only polar bonds in the molecule and the molecule is polar
E. none of the above are true for this molecule


Expert Answer

Step 1

Polarity of a molecule is the appearance of partial charge on the atoms present in it. A molecule comprises of two or more atom which may have differences in their electronegativity.

Step 2

According to pauling scale there is no much difference in the electronegative difference between carbon(2.55) and hydrogen (2.2) which results in non polar character between carbon and hydrogen.

Step 3

In CH3Cl, chlorine is quite electronegative than other atoms present in it and thus it attracts the electron towards it which results in ...
