    \setcounter{chapter}{8} before your \chapter{Polarity} should do... note, it's 8, since \chapter increases the chapter number itself and it will have the value of 9 then. By the way: The \\` inside of the \chapter` title does not look very well.

  • Comment aside: If you plan to have a separate chapter with exactly this number, the \setcounter{...} approach is correct, but normally I would expect you to have 8 chapters before or a strange resetting/manipulation of the chapter counter before occurs.
