Re: How do i know if a molecule has a dipole moment?

A dipole moment is a charge separation that is caused by differences in electronegativity differences. Therefore, if the two atoms that are bonded together are the same element, they have the exact same electronegativity and will be non polar. Otherwise, if there is a difference in electronegativit...
