Molecular Polarity PhET Lab


Downloadall files as a compressed .zip


Title Molecular Polarity PhET Lab
Description This lab asks students to investigate the nature of bonding and the affect of atom's electronegativity on bond polarity. Students then investigate multiple bond dipoles adding to create a molecular dipole. Finally, students are asked to predict which molecules would dissolve in water, based upon their predicted molecular dipole from Lewis structures. If errors or typos are found, please email me. This is my first draft of this investigation.
Duration 60 minutes
Answers Included No
Language English
Keywords Lewis, bonding, bonds, dipole, dissolve, intermolecular, polar, polarity
