is IF4+ polar or nonpolar? Can you please explain why it is also
Total number of electrons: 34
Hybridization of central atom: sp³d
Molecular geometry: see-saw
To see an image of this shape go to
Because of the see-saw geometry, the bond dipoles would not be canceled out. It is not tetrahedral.
The ion is POLAR.
Compare SF4. It is also POLAR for the same reason.
