What do you mean by Dipole Moment and Induced Dipole Moment?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

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).

What is a dipole moment?

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

What does a dipole moment of 0.1 mean?

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.

What molecule has the largest dipole moment?

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

Define polar dipole and dipole moment?

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

Would H20 have a dipole moment?

Yes, H2O is a polar molecule so it would have dipole-dipole forces as well as hydrogen bonding and London dispersion forces.

Why BF3 has zero dipole moment but PF3 has dipole moment?

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

Why dipol moment of methane is zero?

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

Why the dipole moment of so2 is not zero?

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

Why PCl3 has a dipole moment and BCl3 does not have a dipole 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
In Chemistry

Why does PCl3 have a dipole moment and BCL3 does not?

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
In Chemical Bonding

Is Br2 is an induced dipole moment?

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
