A B C D It is a polar molecule with polar bonds It is a polar molecule with nonpolar bonds It is a nonpolar molecule with polar bonds It is a nonpolar molecule with nonpolar bonds In the molecule shown below, which arrow indicates the direction of the dipole moment? Equation The actual values of the ionization potential and electron affinity that are of relevance, however, are not necessarily equal to those of the ground state element This is because electronegativity is a characteristic of the atom when it is bonded to others in a molecule The ionization energy and electron affinity to be used should be the ones for the atom in its correct hybridized state in a molecule The ionization energy of carbon, for example, is the energy needed to remove an electron from its valence 2p orbital In the calculation of its electronegativity in the molecule methane, however, what is meant by the ionization energy is the energy needed to remove an electron from the now sp hybridized orbital Because this orbital contains 25% s character, it is at a lower energy than a p orbital and thus the ionization energy would be greater This also implies that the electronegativity of an element is dependent upon its hybridization in the molecule The Pauling scale is approximately proportional to the Mulliken scale The Mulliken and Pauling electronegativities of elements A and B are related with Equation 2, where XAM and XAP are the Mulliken and Pauling electronegativities of element A, respectively XAM – XBM = 2.78(XAP – XBP) Equation N H H H A B C D The molecule has no overall dipole moment Which structure below has the partial charges correctly represented?

A B C D N—O C—H C—C H—F In which of the following compounds will the nitrogen atom have the highest electronegativity on the Mulliken scale? A H3N: B (H3C)3N: C N D HC≡N: END OF TEST KAPLAN MCAT ANSWER KEY: A D B C D C A B C 10 C 11 12 13 14 15 B D A A A 16 D 17 D as developed by Bonding Test EXPLANATIONS Passage I (Questions 1–7) A The quickest way to obtain the answer is to recognize that bond dissociation is an endothermic process, and that the bond dissociation energy is the amount of energy one needs to supply to break the bond A positive dissociation energy would indicate that the ionically-bonded state is more stable than the state of separated neutral atoms An ionic bond forms, therefore, if D ≥ Substituting in the terms on the left hand side of equation for D and rearranging, one obtains choice A To explain this more fully: the point at which bond formation becomes possible is that point where the energy released upon formation of the ionic bond is greater than or equal to the energy one needs to supply to generate the ionic species The energy required to remove an electron from a neutral atom to form a cation is positive in other words, this process costs energy So, you may ask, why does an ionic bond form? It forms because energy is released in two ways: first, the electron affinity of a neutral atom is positive: i.e energy is released as it accepts one more electron to form an anion; second, the Coulombic attraction between the two oppositely-charged ions means that the system can lower its energy by coming close together (forming the bond) In order to make the process of forming an ionically-bonded species worthwhile, the energy one needs to “invest in,” the ionization energy, has to be less than or at most equal to the “payback,” that is, the energy released in the form of electron affinity and lower Coulomb potential energy Choice A describes this criterion: energy that needs to be supplied = energy to ionize Li = I (Li) energy that one gets back = energy released from adding electron to Cl + Coulombic energy released = electron affinity of Cl + Coulombic energy released What is the Coulombic energy released? When the two ions are infinitely separated, the Coulombic potential energy is zero, since R = When the two are a distance R apart, this electrostatic potential energy is: U= ZLiZCle2 πε R as given in the passage Note that ZLi and ZCl will have opposite signs, and so this term is negative This makes sense as we would expect the energy to be lower when the two are closer than when they are infinitely far apart (The ions are attracted to, not repelled by, each other.) The amount of Coulombic potential energy released as the ionic bond forms, then, is ∆U = – ZLiZCle2 πε R which is positive since the opposite signs of Z Li and Z Cl cancel the negative sign in front The energy one gets back is therefore Ea (Cl) – ZLiZCle2 πε R and this needs to be greater than or equal to I (Li) B This question requires you to use Equation together with Tables and Looking at Equation 1, you can see that the missing values that you need to provide are the electron affinity and the ionization potential; the energy of interaction term the 4πεο part has been given to you in the question stem as 5.74 eV (Z a and Z b are +1 and -1 respectively and so not affect the magnitude of the interaction term) Sodium chloride is Na+ and Cl−, and so we want the ionization potential of sodium and the electron affinity of chlorine These values are 5.14 and 3.61, respectively This gives: D = –I(Na) + Ea(Cl) + 5.74 = –5.14 + 3.61 + 5.74 = 4.21 eV Remember, if the bond forms, then the bond energy (or bond dissociation energy) would have to be positive: bondformation is exothermic; bond-breaking is endothermic KAPLAN MCAT D Ionic bonding predominates in those compounds which contain elements with large differences in electronegativity The larger the difference, the more polar the bond The easiest, and quickest, way to answer this question is to consult the periodic table You should know that the most electronegative elements are located in the upper-right hand corner of the table (excluding the noble gases) and those elements that are the least electronegative are located in the lower left-hand corner Looking at the answer choices, you can see that they are all two-item choices in other words, look for the two compounds whose elements are the furthest apart in the periodic table Compound I is ammonia, which you probably should know to be a covalent compound already Since answer choices A and C both contain roman numeral I, they can be eliminated Roman numeral II, calcium chloride: calcium is located in the second column, fourth row; chlorine is located in the 17th column, third row pretty far apart from each other -mostly ionic You may also know that calcium tends to form the +2 cation, while chlorine forms the –1 anion to complete their octet Oppositely-charged ions would form ionic bonds Roman numeral III, phosphorus pentachloride: in the periodic table, phosphorus and chlorine are only separated from each other by sulfur, making it mostly covalent By elimination, choice D is the correct response A The easiest way to answer this question correctly is to go to Table and see that the shape of BF3 is listed as trigonal planar If there wasn't any information in the passage, you could still answer this question correctly From the periodic table you should be able to determine that boron has two nonvalence electrons in the 1s subshell and three valence electrons that are available for bonding; in other words, boron completes its valence by forming three bonds, and only three bonds When boron forms these three bonds, there will be six bonding electrons surrounding it: there are no nonbonding electrons Since there are no nonbonding electrons to worry about, the bonding electrons arrange themselves to be as far apart from each other as possible As a result, a trigonal arrangement is adopted which has bond angles of 120° C In order for resonance structures to be possible in a molecule or polyatomic ion, it needs to have double and single bonds which can be interchanged In resonance structures, bonds and nonbonding electrons may move, but atoms not In table 3, SO2 is the only one of these which has a double bond The resonance structures are therefore: S S O O O O This implies that the π electrons are actually delocalized over all three atoms Each sulfur-oxygen bond has characteristics intermediate between a single and a double bond D This question is testing you on your understanding of the valence-shell electron-pair repulsion theory (VSEPR) The MCAT requires you to make predictions of molecular shapes using the VSEPR theory PCl has a phosphorus atom at the center surrounded by chlorine atoms; there are no lone pairs, thus giving it the formula AX5 trigonal bipyramidal, choice D C In order to answer this question correctly, you need to remember that ionic bonding results from the attractions between opposite charges Particles in ionic compounds therefore exhibit stronger electrostatic or Coulombic interactions than atoms in covalent bonds Looking at the answer choices, the only choice that is predominately ionic is choice C, NaCl Discrete Questions C A Lewis base is a substance that can donate a pair of electrons Among the answer choices, only PH 3, choice C, has a pair of nonbonding electrons, making it the correct response The easiest way to determine if a substance is a Lewis base is to draw its Lewis dot structure and see if a lone electron pair exists: P H 10 H H as developed by MCAT B To answer this question, we need to write the Lewis dot diagrams and then use any one of several formulas to find the formal charge One such formula is Formal charge = Valence electrons - [number of bonds + number of nonbonding electrons] The Lewis dot structure of HNO3 is as follows: O O N N OH OH O O Formal charge is equal to the valence electrons of nitrogen, which is 5, minus the sum of the number of bonds and the number of nonbonding electrons, which in this case is So, the formal charge on the nitrogen is equal to 5–4 which is +1 10 C Remember that in resonance forms, only electrons (bonds and nonbonding electron pairs) can move Examining the answer choices, you can see that the atomic linkages are all the same except for answer choice C; the carbon second from the left in choice C now has a methyl group bonded to it, whereas the other choices have hydrogens in this position Below are the resonance structures showing the actual way that the electrons can be shifted around: O H2C C H C H C O H2 C H C H C H C O H2C H C H C H C H It is always important to keep in mind, however, that “shifting” or “moving” electrons is just a figure of speech: the π electrons are really delocalized over all the bonds 11 B The first thing you should to verify a Lewis structure of a molecule is to make sure that all the valence electrons are accounted for For choice A, acetylene, there are two carbons, each having valence electrons, and hydrogens, each having valence electron So, choice A needs to have 10 valence electrons, and indeed it has For choice B, nitrogen dioxide, there is nitrogen, which has valence electrons, and oxygens, each having six valence electrons there should be a total of 17 electrons accounted for Counting the electrons in choice B you can see that it has only 16 electrons choice B is the correct answer Choice C, sulfur trioxide, should have a total of 24 valence electrons, electrons from each element Counting the valence electrons, you'll see that it has the required 24 Choice D, boron trichloride, should have and does have 24 electrons Passage II (Questions 12–17) 12 D The relationship between the Pauling and Mulliken scales of electronegativity given in Equation has four unknowns, though some may look similar at first glance To solve such an equation we must be given, or be able to determine, three of these unknowns In this question, only one of the unknowns (the Pauling electronegativity of phosphorus) is given without more information there is no way to figure out the other two To determine the equivalent Pauling or Mulliken electronegativity for an element A we must know both the Pauling and Mulliken electronegativities of the other element B Likely mathematical errors might include the attempted algebraic cancellation of XBM with XBP from both sides of the equation This is a common mistake and there are two reasons why this approach is incorrect Firstly, the unknowns are not identical (though they look similar) and cannot be cancel each other out Secondly, even if the two variables were identical (i.e both XBM and XBP = XB), cancellation would not work: the variables on the right side of the equation would have to be first multiplied by 2.78 (converting –XB to –2.78XB) before X B is added to both sides of the equation (leaving –1.78XB on the right side of the equation) The variable would still remain and the answer still could not be determined 13 A Once again a question concerning VSEPR theory and vector addition The correct VSEPR class for SO2 is AX2E; its VSEPR shape is angular As can be seen from the drawing of SO in Table of the first passage, the individual bonds are 11 as developed by MCAT polar and the vector sum of the bonds is nonzero, choice A is the correct response If you had forgotten the shape of SO 2, or it is not made available to you, you could have realized that it contains polar bonds, only homonuclear bonds are nonpolar, and eliminated choices B and D, giving you a 50/50 chance of selecting the correct answer 14 A Another vector addition question the vector sum of the three H N dipole moments is an arrow which goes straight up the middle of the molecule You should know that a dipole vector is represented as an arrow, with the head of the arrow pointing to the partial negative charge In this case, nitrogen would be the center of partial negative charge since it's more electronegative than hydrogen Adding the three bond vectors together gives a dipole moment having the direction shown by arrow one: N H H H 15 A Choice A is the only one where the more electronegative atom has a partial negative charge In this example, the nitrogen, being the more electronegative, has a small negative charge due to increased electron density and the electropositive carbon has a small partial positive charge 16 D The most polar bond is the one that has the greatest difference in the electronegativities of the two elements (Remember, electronegativity increases in going from the lower left to the upper right of the periodic table.) Among these choices, H-F is the most polar since hydrogen and fluorine are the furthest apart in the periodic table 17 D The key to this question lies in understanding the point made in the second paragraph Depending on the hybridization of the atom, the ionization potential and the electron affinity values change and thus so does the Mulliken electronegativity In particular, the higher the percentage of s character, the higher the electronegativity Choice D has the nitrogen in an sp hybridized state This means that each sigma orbital has 50% s character This is the highest among the four shown and thus the nitrogen atom there has the highest electronegativity Choices A and B both have the nitrogen in the sp3 hybridized state The nitrogen in choice C is sp2 hybridized The sigma orbital thus has 33% s character 12 as developed by ...
