Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Jess on Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 1:39pm.

I know caffeine is more polar than salicylic acid but how would I explain that given their respective structures?

I know for smaller molecules you would figure out the polarity of individual bonds and the molecule's geometry but I can't figure out how to transfer this to more complex molecules.

Thank you!
