Homework Help: Chemistry molecular shapes prob.

  1. Jan 31, 2007 #1
    1. Determine the shapes of Br2 (2 Bromine atoms) and HBr. Which is more polar and why?

    2. No equations.

    3. Okay, I know that Br2 and HBr molecule shapes are linear (I know how to draw them) but I do not get how to find which one is more polar. :confused:
