What type of compound is NF3?
Is it molecular or ionic?
The name of the compound is nitrogen trifluoride. The compound is a covalent compound since both nitrogen and fluorine are nonmetals.
Is NF3 ionic or covalent compound?
The electronegativity of N and F are 3.0 and 4.0, respectively. So, the difference in electronegativity between N and F is (4.0-3.0) or 1.0. As the electronegativity difference is less than 1.8, therefore each bond between N and F is covalent. Hence, NF3 N F 3 is a molecular compound
