The O'Donnell Foundation is devoted to building model programs to enhance the quality of education.
Over the summer PhET will be hard at work upgrading our simulations for the new school year! Help support our summer vacation work and give the gift of learning by donating today!

|Title||Molecular Polarity PhET Lab|
|Keywords||dipole, polar, polarity, dissolve, intermolecular, bonding, bonds|
|Description||This lab asks students to investigate the nature of bonding and the affect of atom's electronegativity on bond polarity. Students then investigate multiple bond dipoles adding to create a molecular dipole. Finally, students are asked to predict which molecules would dissolve in water, based upon their predicted molecular dipole. If errors or typos are found, please email me. This is my first draft of this investigation.|
