Carbon monoxide (CO) is a polar molecule. Polar molecules are made up of atoms with different electronegativities arranged asymmetrically around a central atom. Since oxygen is more electronegative than carbon, the carbon monoxide molecule is polar.
Polar liquids are made up of covalently bonded molecules that each have a partial positive charge on one end and a partial negative charge on the other end. They can dissolve solids that are made of polar molecules but cannot combine with a substance made of nonpolar molecules.
When someone is diagnosed with both bi-polar and borderline personality disorders and exhibits manic rage or anger accompanied by paranoia or hallucinations, she may suffer from tri-polar disorder. Tri-polar is not recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Editi
Install a 110-volt polarized electrical plug by connecting the white wire to the steel or chrome-plated screw, the black wire to the brass screw and the bare ground wire, if it is used, to the green screw. If installing a plug on an appliance where the wiring is not color coded, observe the connecti
A substance comprised of molecules that contain unbalanced localized charges (dipoles) is a polar substance. Polar substances tend to interact with other polar substances and rarely react to a significant degree with nonpolar substances.
Reversed polarity occurs when the positive and negative wires are connected the wrong way at an electrical outlet. Normally, the positive wire is connected to the positive terminal and the negative wire to the negative terminal in an electrical outlet.
Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is a nonpolar molecule. The molecule has a linear geometry due to the molecular arrangement of the compound. It is arranged with a central carbon molecule and two oxygen atoms surrounding the carbon atom.
Animals that live in the polar regions include penguins, seals, bears, sea lions and walruses. There are two polar regions near the North and South poles, located at the northernmost and southernmost parts of the Earth. While the two regions are similar in temperature, animal life and survival diffe
Two adaptations of the polar bear are its white fur and its black skin. The fur, which is actually transparent, reflects sunlight and camouflages the bear as it makes its way along ice floes in the arctic. The bear's black skin absorbs sunlight and keeps it warm.
Polarized lenses have a filter laminated on them that only allows vertically oriented light to pass through, while non-polarized lenses are usually just tinted to block light. Non-polarized lenses do not contain a filter to remove glare.
