Lesson Worksheet: Polar Bonding Chemistry

In this worksheet, we will practice identifying polar bonds within molecules and assessing their effect on the polarity of the molecule as a whole.


Which of the molcules Br2, HF, CHCl3, CCl4, and NH3 contains polar bonds but is not a polar molecule?

  • AHF
  • BCHCl3
  • CNH3
  • DBr2
  • ECCl4


Which of the following bonds is considered polar?

  • BrBr
  • CH
  • CC
  • OH
  • OO
