Orbital shell notation of fluorine is 2. 7 while that of oxygen o 2. 6. This means that these items (which follow each other in the periodic table) have a high electronegativity in molecules, due to their high atomic number (which causes it to strongly attract electron orbital shell closest to your core). NB: Atomic number of a peroid increase from left to right of the periodic table.Therefore, in the first molecule, the negative dipole is more likely to be found between the F atoms In the second molecule the negative of the molecule would be more likely to be found in between the O and F atoms.
