POCl3 - Phosphoryl Chloride:
First draw the Lewis dot structure:
Then draw the 3D molecular structure using VSEPR rules:
Click and drag the molecle to rotate it.
The molecular geometry of POCl3 is tetrahedral with asymmetric charge distribution around the central atom.
Therefore this molecule is polar.
