Click to see full answer.
Similarly, why bond angle in nh3 is greater than nf3?
This leads to increase in the bond angleofNH3 but in NF3 the bond pairs attract totheFluorine atom, (terminal atoms). The distance b/w electronpairsincrease and hence, repulsion decreases. So, NF3 hassmallerbond angle. While the bond angle of PH3 islessthan that of PF3.
Secondly, which is more polar nh3 or nf3? Dipole moment of NH3 is higher thanNF3molecule.Both the molecules have pyramidal shape with alone pairof electrons on nitrogen atom. There is a greaterdifference inelectronegativity between nitrogen and hydrogenthanthere isbetween nitrogen and fluorine.
Secondly, which has highest bond angle?
The bond angle of CH4 is 109.5degree.Hence comparatively CO2 has the maximum bond angleamongthese three substances.
Which is more electronegative nh3 or nf3?
But, NH3 has more dipole momentthanNF3. In NH3, N is more electronegativethan H.So, N pulls the electrons from H towards itself and so,thedirection of moment due to the N-H bonds is in the samedirectionas that of the lone pair of electrons onNitrogen.
