. In assigning oxidation states for a covalently bonded molecule, we assume that the more ________ element controls both electrons of the covalent bond.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The term corresponding to the given blank is to be stated.

In assigning oxidation state for a covalently bonded molecule, we assume that the more ________element controls both electrons of the covalent bond.

Concept Introduction:

A covalent bond is a type of chemical bond that formed when two atoms share electrons with each other. The compounds that have pure covalent bonds between atoms are non-polar compounds.

Explanation

The covalent bond is formed by the sharing of electrons between atoms. When both the atoms bonded by covalent bond have similar electronegativity, then the bond is considered as purely covalent. However, sometimes the electronegativity difference between the bonded atoms is high. In this case, the bond is not purely covalent because it also has some percentage ionic character...
