BC: This book was created for Ms. Soja's Chemistry Class. We had to make a booklet about different molecules and their molecular structures, if they were polar or non-polar, their everyday use, and their formulas.
FC: Molecular Compounds | By: Christian and Rowan | Sulfur hexafluoride, Ethanol alcohol, Water, Sulfuric Acid, Carbon Disulfide
1: Ethanol Alcohol | The formula for Ethanol Alcohol is C2H5OH. Ethanol Alcohol is polar because the oxygen draws electrons to itself because it has a high electronegativity. | Ethanol Alcohol is used in alcoholic beverages, fuel, and thermometers. Ethanol Alcohol is in a tetrahedral shape.
2: Water | The formula of water is H2O. Water is polar because the is more oxygen in the molecule and oxygen has a high electronegativity while hydrogen has a low electronegativity, which lead to oxygen pulling electrons closer to it. | Water decomposes to hydrogen and oxygen. Water is also used in a humidifier which puts moisture in the air. Water is in an angular shape.
3: Sulfuric Acid | The formula of Sulfuric Acid is H2S04. Sulfuric Acid is polar because it has a high electronegativity. | Sulfuric Acid is used in the production of fertilizers and more than 40 tons of it was produced in 1990 as one of the most important industrial chemicals. Sulfuric Acid is a tetrahedral molecule.
4: Carbon Disulfide | The formula of Carbon Disulfide is CS2. | Carbon Disulfide is non polar because it shares the 2 sulfurs equally. | Carbon Disulfide is used in cellophane. Carbon Disulfide has a linear shape.
5: Sulfur hexafluoride | The formula for sulfur hexafluoride is TeF6 Sulfur Hexafluoride is a non polar molecule. | Sulfur hexafluoride is used in high voltage circuit breakers. The Sulfur hexafluoride shape is a octahedral.
