Sierra has a special kind of liquid rubber. She knows that ultraviolet light is absorbed by the rubber, X-ray light is transmitt
ed through the rubber, and blue light is reflected off the rubber. Sierra wonders if the liquid rubber will become solid if she shines the lights on it. Can light cause the rubber to become solid? Why or why not? Does it matter what type of light she shines on the rubber?
The compound with this molecular geometry is Carbon tetrafluoride (CF₄)
Carbon tetrafluoride (CF₄) also known as Tetrafluoromethane, is known to be the simplest perfluorocarbon. The compound, tetrafluoromethane is the hydrocarbon methane has been perfluorinated. It useful as a refrigerant but known to be a greenhouse gas. Due to the nature of the carbon-flourine bond, it has very high bonding strength. Its bonds are known to be the strongest single bonds in organic chemistry.
