Which one is the most polar based on their Lewis structure: Hydrochloric acid (HCl) or hydroiodic acid (HI)?
Water is the most polar molecule as a bond between oxygen and hydrogen has the most electronegativity difference out of all the atoms. Polarity depends upon electronegativity difference.
Answer and Explanation: 1
HCl is more polar than HI as the electronegativity difference between hydrogen and chlorine is greater when compared to the electronegativity...
