1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For the molecule CHCl3, a) Draw the electron dot diagram and structural formula b) predict the shape c) predict whether it is polar or non-polar, and justify your prediction. Indicate the positive and negative poles. 2. Relevant equations none 3. The attempt at a solution Are there any websites or programs that will allow me to create lewis dot diagrams, structural formulas, and all of that fun stuff on a computer? As of right now I am doing it on paper and uploading it for my teacher. a) My electron dot diagram is correct, I searched it up online. The structural formula is Carbon as the central atom with Hydrogen above it, and three Cl atoms surrounding it. They are all single bonds. b) The shape of CHCl3 is tetrahedral because the central carbon atom is surrounded by 4 bonding pairs, and 0 lone pairs. c) This is probably incorrect but I gave it a shot. C = 2.5 EN H = 2.2 EN Cl = 3.1 EN The hydrogen dipole arrow is pointed in the direction of carbon because carbon is more electronegative than hydrogen. The chlorine bond dipole arrows point in the direction of chlorine because it is more electronegative than carbon and hydrogen. The dipoles are not identical in strength, they are not arranged symmetrically, and they do not cancel each other out therefore the molecule is polar. I'm not sure how to figure out which poles are positive and which are negative. Would Hydrogen be the negative pole, and Chlorine be the positive pole? Hydrogen is the least electronegative of the 3 atoms, and chlorine is the most electronegative of the 3. What would carbon be? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
