(a) Interpretation: Whether the bond in LiBr is nonpolar covalent, polar covalent, or ionic is to be stated. Concept introduction: Electronegativity is defined as the tendency of an atom to attract electrons towards it. Polarized bonds are the result of the electronegativity difference between bonding atoms. If the electronegativity difference is 0 , the bond is known as nonpolar covalent bond, if electronegativity difference is between 0 to 2.1 , then the bond is known as polar covalent bond and if it is more than 2.1 , then the bond is known as ionic bond.

Solutions

Chapter 4, Problem 4.58E
Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

Whether the bond in LiBr is nonpolar covalent, polar covalent, or ionic is to be stated.

Concept introduction:

Electronegativity is defined as the tendency of an atom to attract electrons towards it. Polarized bonds are the result of the electronegativity difference between bonding atoms. If the electronegativity difference is 0, the bond is known as nonpolar covalent bond, if electronegativity difference is between 0 to 2.1, then the bond is known as polar covalent bond and if it is more than 2.1, then the bond is known as ionic bond.

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

Whether the bond in HCl is nonpolar covalent, polar covalent, or ionic is to be stated.

Concept introduction:

Electronegativity is defined as the tendency of an atom to attract electrons towards it. Polarized bonds are the result of the electronegativity difference between bonding atoms. If the electronegativity difference is 0, the bond is known as nonpolar covalent bond, if electronegativity difference is between 0 to 2.1, then the bond is known as polar covalent bond and if it is more than 2.1, then the bond is known as ionic bond.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

Whether the bond in PH3 is nonpolar covalent, polar covalent, or ionic is to be stated.

Concept introduction:

Electronegativity is defined as the tendency of an atom to attract electrons towards it. Polarized bonds are the result of the electronegativity difference between bonding atoms. If the electronegativity difference is 0, the bond is known as nonpolar covalent bond, if electronegativity difference is between 0 to 2.1, then the bond is known as polar covalent bond and if it is more than 2.1, then the bond is known as ionic bond.

Interpretation Introduction

(d)

Interpretation:

Whether the bond in SO2 is nonpolar covalent, polar covalent, or ionic is to be stated.

Concept introduction:

Electronegativity is defined as the tendency of an atom to attract electrons towards it. Polarized bonds are the result of the electronegativity difference between bonding atoms. If the electronegativity difference is 0, the bond is known as nonpolar covalent bond, if electronegativity difference is between 0 to 2.1, then the bond is known as polar covalent bond and if it is more than 2.1, then the bond is known as ionic bond.

Interpretation Introduction

(e)

Interpretation:

Whether the bond in CsF is nonpolar covalent, polar covalent, or ionic is to be stated.

Concept introduction:

Electronegativity is defined as the tendency of an atom to attract electrons towards it. Polarized bonds are a result of the electronegativity difference between bonding atoms. If the electronegativity difference is 0, the bond is known as nonpolar covalent bond, if it’s between 0 to 2.1, the bond is known as polar covalent bond and if its more than 2.1, the bond is known as ionic bond.
