Which of the following bonds is the most polar?

A. C-F
B. C-C
C. C-O
D. C-N

I was originally going to pick C-F because F is the most electronegative, but I'm not so sure. Help?

  1. Look up the electronegativity(EN) of each element in the bond, subtract. The largest difference will be the most polar. I didn't look them up but I think you're correct in picking C-F.

    I am having trouble understanding polarity. I think I understand what it is - when a chemical bond occurs and there is or is not a resulting charge on the molecule. And the book says that the amount of polarity is the difference
