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 .

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 product magnitude ofcharge on the atoms and the distance between the two bonded atoms.Its common unit is debye and SI unit is c (MORE)

What is the dipole moment of chlorooctane?

It depends . There are multiple forms of the molecule "chlorooctane." This is because the chlorine atom can be attached to the octane chain in several different places, and each different placement will result in a different dipole moment. If you specify the structure of the compound more precise (MORE)

How can you tell if there is a dipole moment or not?

A dipole moment is defined as a measure of the molecular polarity of a compound; the magnitude of the partial charges on the ends of a molecule times the distance between them (in meters).\n. \nIn order for there to be a dipole moment the element must must have molecular polarity which results from (MORE)

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 ion pair .

Does PCl5 have a dipole moment?

The characteristics that determine whether or not a molecule is dipolar are: -the electron distribution around the central atom is not symmetrical and/or -atoms coming off the central atom are not symmetrically arranged. PCl5 does not qualifies for the first one because there is one electron pair (MORE)

What is the dipole moment of CH4?

dipole moment of ch4 is zero .the ch4 is tetrahedral in shape thus each bond pair are at equal distance that is they are symmetrically arranged hence each dipole moment of bond balance each other.

What is the dipole moment of HF?

1 D (Debye) ~ 3.34 x 10^-30 C m (Coulomb meters), therefore the dipole moment of HF = 1.91 x 3.34 x 10^-30 = 6.38 x 10^-30 C m

Dipole moment of CO2?

\nthe total dipole moment of co2 is 0. it only has a dipole moment during its asymmetric stretch and its vertical and horizontal bends, which are degenerate.

Does CCL4 have a dipole moment?

CCL4 does not have a dipole moment as there are no lone electrons and also because of it's symmetrical shape. although there is an charge difference between the atoms it cancels out due to the symmetrical shape.

Does so3 have a dipole moment?

No. Although it is resonance, the bonds are still equal (they are all the same length, intermediate in length between a single and a double bond), so they cancel out.

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 of a dipole that is described by a vector p that is p = q x 2a is called dipole moment.

Why dipole moment is avector?

Since there is charge separation in a polar covalent bond, there is also resultant electric field from partial positive charge to partial negative charge.hence due to electric field in one direction and also magnitude of equal and opposite charge.....it is a vector.

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 Pyramidal molecule because along with three bonded electron pairs Phosphorus also have a lone pair of electrons, due to asymm (MORE)

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 , also tetrahedral, definitely has polar bonds but because they cancel one another out it has no dipole

Why is dipole moment never permanent?

Electrons are constantly moving around the molecule. The dipole moment is just an average or where the electron cloud most likely to be if you were to freeze the molecule.

Why CHCl3 show dipole moment?

In CHCl3 i.e Chloroform there are 3 highly electronegative chlorine atoms and one hydrogen atom. due to difference in electronegativityof hand cl atoms around Carbon CHCl3 shows Dipole Moment.

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 dipole moment.

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 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 bo (MORE)

What is the dipole moment of H2Se?

If you can't find the dipole moment online then you can get a pretty good approximation using the following method though it is a bit involved. You will need the following two pieces of information before you begin, which I have obtained from Chemistry, The Central Science by Theodore Brown 11e: (MORE)

Why water have dipole moment?

Even though the total charge on a molecule is zero, the nature of chemical bonds is such that the positive and negative charges do not completely overlap in most molecules. Such molecules are said to be polar because they possess a permanentdipole moment. A good example is the dipole moment of the w (MORE)

Why NF3 has dipole moment?

Fluorine is more electronegative than nitrogen and therefore the N-F bonds are polar. the lone pair dipole runs in the opposite direction and counteracts the bond dipoles. . Therefore the net dipole moment but it is relatively low at 0.235 D

Does CH2Cl2 have a dipole moment?

Yup. One side of CH 2 Cl 2 has C and H atoms, which are very similar in electronegativity. The other side has Cl, the 2nd most electronegative atom. So, obviously electrons would want to be near Cl --> electron cloud is more dense on the Cl side.

What is Dipole moment of acetylene?

Acetylene is a linear molecule and has no dipole moment. It would have a quadrupole moment, but a fairly weak one as the carbon-hydrogen bond is not especially polar.

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 of electrons in the electron clouds.

Does SiF4 have a dipole moment?

NO. SiF 4 is a tetrahedral molecule. It has one F on top and the other three as a base for a tetrahedral structure. F ! dipole is upwards for this F. Si resultant dipole is downwards for the 3 F's / ! ) F F F so they cancel each other. Therefore the dipole moment is 0.

Why does AsF5 have no dipole moment?

the geometric shape is trigonal bipyramidal since the central atom of As has 5 single bonds, and 0 lone pair electrons. the individual polarities between atoms cancel eachother out

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 (MORE)

Is boron triflouride a dipole moment?

No. the bonds are polar covalent and there are bond dipoles but these cancel each other out (vector addition0 due to the symmetry of the molecule. BF 3 is planar with a bond angle of 120 0 .

Does a dipole moment exist with Neon?

Neon exists as a monoatomic molecule. Hence it doesn't have any permanent dipole moment. However instantaneous dipoles are present, and these give rise to London dispersion forces

Why dipol moment of bf3 is zero?

BF 3 is a planar molecule with bond angle 120 0 . The bonds are polar but the bond dipoles cancel one another out - think of it as symmetry or vector addition or that they pull equally in opposite directions.

Yes. PH 3 is a trigonal pyramidalk structure like ammonia with a lone pair. There is an electronegtaivity difference between P and H and the bond dipoles and the lone pair contribution all give a smallish dipole moent,

Does scl4 have a dipole moment?

No. the molecule is symmetric (tetrahedral) and while the Si-Clbonds are polar the bond dipole moments cancel one another out.
