What do you mean by Dipole Moment and Induced Dipole Moment?
in random movement of electrons more may end up on one side of the molecule than the other, creating a temporary negative charge on that side. this is a dipole moment. an induced dipole is a nearby molecule whose electrons are repelled by the negative charge on the dipole, creating a negative charge on the opposite side (and positive charge on side near dipole).

Dipole moment is the measure polarity of a polar covalent bond . In language of physics it can be defined as the measure of strengthof electric dipole. It is defined as the pr…oduct magnitude ofcharge on the atoms and the distance between the two bonded atoms.Its common unit is debye and SI unit is coulomb metre. The magnitude of dipole moment is equal to the product of eithercharge and the distance between the charges and its direction isfrom -q to +q.It is directed from the (-)ve charge to the (+)vecharge.In fact, it is the behavior of a dipole. . A separation of charge forming a positive and a negative end of amolecule ~APEX .
It means that the product of the amount of separated charges, times the distance between the charges, in whatever units were selected, is that much.
Cyanamide has a high dipole ca 4 Debye. HCN is ca 3 Debye. Gaseousforms of halide salts e.g molecular KBr has a very high dipolemoment of around 10 Debyye as it essentailly an… ion pair . Theprevious version of this answer said CO 2 had a dipolemoment - as it is symmetric (linear molecule) its dipole moment is0.
Yes it does =)
Electric dipole in the polar molecules in which the centre of positive charge does not coincide with the centre of negative charge is called polar dipole. And,the behavior o…f a dipole that is described by a vector p that is p = q x 2a is called dipole moment.
Yes, H2O is a polar molecule so it would have dipole-dipole forces as well as hydrogen bonding and London dispersion forces.
No. H 2 molecule does not have any dipole moment.
XeF2 has NO dipole moment. It is linear, F-Xe- F. Both ends will have the same electron density arounf them.
A pair of two oppsite charges separated by a fixed lenght consitiute a dipole
BF 3 is a Trigonal planar molecule due to presence of three electrons pairs around the Boron atom, due to symmetry in molecule the Dipole moment becomes zero, but PF 3 is a …Pyramidal molecule because along with three bonded electron pairs Phosphorus also have a lone pair of electrons, due to asymmetry in the molecule this molecule has a net Dipole moment.
Two reasons the bonds are not very polar AND even if they were the bond dipoles would cancel one another out as they point in different directions CH 4 is tetrahedral. CCl 4… , also tetrahedral, definitely has polar bonds but because they cancel one another out it has no dipole
The S-O bonds are polar because oxygen is more electronegative than sulfur. Unlike CO 2 , the molecular geometry of SO 2 is bent rather than linear, giving SO 2 a net dipo…le moment.
B forms 3 bonds (has 3 valence electrons) and is sp2 hybridized, so the molecule is trigonal planar, which is symmetrical. P can form 5 bonds (has 5 valence electrons), and in… PCl3 has a free electron pair which makes the molecule non-symmetrical.
The geometry of PCl3 is trigonal pyramidal. As a result the more electronegative chlorine atoms pull the electrons away from the phosphorus in a net direction. The geometry… of BCl3 is trigonal planar. So the three B-Cl bonds are evenly spaced in the same plane. As a result, the polarity of the bonds essentially cancel each other out.

No, Br 2 is actually a London dispersion. The reason that Br 2 is a dispersion is because dispersion forces are weak forces that result from temporary shifts in the density …of electrons in the electron clouds.
