Answer

CO2 is a polar molecule, with the dipole pointing at oxygen. It will point at oxygen because oxygen has a higher electronegativity than carbon. CO is a polar molecule, and the dipole will point at oxygen. It will point at oxygen because it has a higher electronegativity than carbon. H2O, or water, is a polar molecule, and the dipole will point at oxygen. Oxygen has a higher electronegativity than hydrogen.
