Re: Dipole moment vs dipole bond

Hello! A dipole moment is a measure of the polarity of a certain bond. Therefore, if we have a polar bond, then it will have a non-zero dipole moment. Of course, a polar bond arises from the unequal sharing of electrons between atoms (differences in electronegativity), so a dipole moment is also a ...

Re: Midterm 2

I heard Organic Chem on youtube is super helpful, I watch from time to time for a few topics! Also, khan academy is a life saver. Textbook problems are definitely the best way to go for studying though.

Re: polar vs nonpolar

From what I read, the electronegativity difference has to be between 0.5 and 1.6 to be considered polar. Anything less than 0.5 is non-polar!

Re: Partial vs Formal charge

A partial charge is indicated by which atom of a bond has the higher EN and which has the lower EN. A formal charge is indicated by the # gained or lossed electrons.

This cleared things up for me! Thank you!

Re: determining electronegativity

On the periodic table, electronegativity increases from bottom to top in groups, and increases from left to right across periods!
