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 ...

School is stressful and hard at times! Most students at this university put their 110% and leave little time for themselves. But please, if you put in the hours, take some time for yourself and do the things that make you happy or bring you peace. Don't overcrowd your brain, everything that you need...
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.

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!
