ClF5 Chlorine Pentafluoride:
First draw the Lewis dot structure:
Electron geometry: octahedral. Hybridization: sp3d2
Then draw the 3D molecular structure using VSEPR rules:
The molecular geometry of ClF5 is square pyramidal with asymmetric charge distribution around the central atom.
Therefore this molecule is polar.
