Is chlorine polar or nonpolar?

You have a nonpolar covalent bond anytime the two atoms involved in the bond are the same or anytime the difference in the electronegativities of the atoms involved in the bond is very small. Now consider hydrogen chloride (HCl). Hydrogen has an electronegativity of 2.1, and chlorine has an electronegativity of 3.0.

Is cl2 a dipole?

H2O has dispersion, dipole-dipole, and hydrogen bonding. Cl2 has only dispersion forces and is non-polar. HCl had dispersion forces but also is dipole-dipole. SMALLER compounds are generally MORE soluble in water than larger compounds with similar structures.

What is the electronegativity difference of cl2?
