Polar Covalent Bond Examples

In polar covalent bond examples, the bond is made between two atoms, in which there is a large difference in electronegativity. The electronegativity difference disturbs the distribution of a pair of electrons between the two atoms. The electron density shifts towards the element which is more electronegative.

Polar and Non-Polar Covalent Bond

We have studied the Lewis concept which relates with the covalent bond. When a bond formed within molecules. Then a molecule may have one of these two characteristics:-

A. Polar. 

B. Non-Polar.

When covalent bond made between two similar atoms, for example, H2, O2, Cl2, N2  or F2, a pair of shared electrons are attracted equally by two atoms. As a result, the electrons remain at center between two equal nuclei. This type of bond is term as non polar bond.

Polar Covalent Bond Examples

No polarity developed on atoms because the shared pair of electrons is exactly at center that is equal distance to both of them

In the case of a heteronuclear molecule( bond between different atoms), example HF, the shared electron pairs between the two atoms are more displaced towards the fluorine because the electronegativity of fluorine is more than hydrogen. As a result, the bond is polar.

This result the two atoms acquire negative and partial positive charge having the same magnitude. And how much magnitude of positive or negative charge develops between atoms is measured by dipole moment. The molecule with the greater difference of electronegativity more will be the polarity of the bond.

There is no limit of polar bond examples.The explanation of all polar bond is same as above.

Polar Covalent Bond Examples

Hundred percent ionic existence or covalent bond represents an ideal condition. Actually, there is no bond or a compound is either completely covalent or ionic. Even in a case of a non polar bond between two atoms, there exists some ionic character.

Polar Bond Examples

The cross represents positive end and arrowhead represents the negative end. Arrow symbolizes the direction of the shift of electron density.

1.Water (H2O)

Polar Covalent Bond Examples

2.Beryllium fluoride(BeF2 )  

The polarity in case of BeF2 is zero. Opposite directions cancel the effect of each other
