Testing liquids for polarity

Join now!

Approximate decreasing polarity of liquids:

· Ethanoic acid

· Ethane-1,2-diol

· Distilled water

· Propanone

· Ethanol

· Ethyl acetate        

· Propanol

· Heptane



 Relating compounds structures and the deflection of its jet when a charged was induced, let know relatively the liquids polarity. Mostly every of the liquids contain hydrocarbons and oxygen, except Heptane, which ended to be a non-polar covalent compound. Compounds with an electronegative difference between the lower and higher number, lower of 1.3 ends to be a covalent compound. Covalent compounds are bonding which share one or more pairs of electrons ...
