Question

Arrange the bonds in order of increasing ionic character in the molecules: LiF, K2O, N2, SO2 and ClF3.

Solution

The ionic character in a molecule is dependent upon the electronegativity difference between the constituting atoms. The greater the difference, the greater will be the ionic character of the molecule.

On this basis, the order of increasing ionic character in the given molecules is

N2 < SO2 < ClF3 < K2O < LiF.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
