CCl4 - Carbon Tetrachloride:
First draw the Lewis dot structure:
Electron geometry: tetrahedral. Hybridization: sp3
Then draw the 3D molecular structure using VSEPR rules:
Click and drag the molecule to rotate it.
The molecular geometry of CCl4 is tetrahedral with symmetric charge distribution around the central atom.
Therefore CCl4 is nonpolar.
