Some questions about cortisol - the hormone...

What functional groups are present?

Properties of the molecule in relation to the functional groups.

Polarity?

You can't get a pH of a molecule. pH refers to concentrations of hydrogen ions in a solution and varies with both concentration of a solute in the solution and temperature.

Cortisol is one of the steroid hormones. The structure of cortisol, along with other steroids, can be found on this site:
