Chemical Bond Polarity


Chemical bond polarity is the concept that explains the property of sharing an electron between two elements. Covalent bond between the elements can be either polar or non-polar. This is determined with the concept of electro-negativity. If the electrons are shared equally between the atoms then its a non-polar covalent bond. If one of the atom is electronegative, it has more tendency to attract the electrons. Then the bond is called as polar covalent bond. This calculator is used to find the bond polarity and tendency of electro-negativity in each element.

Chemical Bond Polarity

Nonpolar Covalent:
If, Electronegativity Difference = 0

Polar Covalent:
If, 2 > Electronegativity Difference > 0

Ionic (Non-Covalent):
If, Electronegativity Difference > = 2

If there’s more than 2 elements how to determine the electronegativity???

This isn’t helpful at all. I need to find differences between three elements not two! (CHCI3)

This is terrible.

Every calculation of the dozen I made is polar covalent.
Must be a bug.

The calculations are correct, but not the “Type of Bond”
Polar covalent bonds are if the END are more than 0.4, and nonpolar is 0.4 or less. The “formula” on this website is wrong.

This is very helpful for a chemistry student.

My teacher marked this wrong. It doesn’t work. I did it ten times, and I got the same answer. Please upvote this if you agree.
These tend to be more accurate:
0.4 but 1.7 = ionic
Also look at the periodic table. As the elements progress from left to right, the electronegativity increases. As the elements progress down the row from top to bottom, the electronegativity decreases. The larger the difference between the electronegativity of the two elements, the more polar it is.
Hope it helps! šŸ™‚

Sorry: here are the measurements:
if the difference is less than 0.04, the bond is non-polar covalent
If the difference is greater than 0.04 but less than 1.7, the bond is polar covalent
If the difference is greater than 1.7, the bond is ionic

Your ‘difference’ list is very useful, thank you, but I think you added an extra decimal place. Shouldn’t it be:
If the difference is less than 0.4 (not 0.04)…. Actually, the number I was given was 0.5 (rounded up, I guess).

As to whether the calculator doesn’t work – could you give an example (it works as far as I can see)?
