Textbook Problem

For each of the bonds listed below, tell which atom is the more negatively charged.

  1. (a) C—N
  2. (b) C—H
  3. (c) C—Br
  4. (d) S—O

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The more negatively charged atom in the given bond should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Electronegativity: It is defined as the capacity of the atom to abstract the pair of electrons towards itself results to have high negative charge.

Explanation

C-N

Electronegative atoms are those which are closest to Fluorine atom since electronegativity follows the trend that it increases as we move from left to

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The more negatively charged atom in the given bond should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Electronegativity: It is defined as the capacity of the atom to abstract the pair of electrons towards itself results to have high negative charge.
