This lab aligns to the Molecular Polarity Simulation in from the University of Colorado's PhET Simulations. The goal of this lab to have students explore the relationship between electronegativity and partial charge of an atom in a polar molecule. Students should have a basic understanding of polar covalent bonds and electronegativity prior to starting the lab.
The lab includes a color coded answer key. The entire activity can be completed easily in a 50-80 minute class period.
