Titre Using the Molecule Polarity PhET Simulation: Concept Development for Understanding Molecular Dipoles
Description This activity was done in week 7 of the first term general chemistry course at UC-Riverside. The activity was done at the beginning of the unit on molecular dipoles, which was initiated immediately after the unit on molecular shape/geometry. This activity was done as the initial exploration into the concept of molecular polarity, with the goal of helping students understand how applying the concepts of electronegativity, bond dipoles, and molecular shape can allow one to determine if a net molecular dipole exists or not.
