Drawing dipoles

Postby vanessas0123 » Tue Nov 19, 2019 5:52 pm

In a molecule, do you draw the arrow/ dipole towards the δ- charge or the δ+ charge?

Dr. Lavelle has said that the arrows should point towards the partial negative.

The book brings up two methods one with the arrow pointing towards the negative and the other pointing towards the positive but Lavelle always has it point towards the negative so I would do that.
