Debye units

Postby Alex Nguyen 3I » Sun Oct 25, 2015 2:52 pm

Can anyone explain to me what the number of debyes tells you about the atoms/charges/polarity involved? I know that the electric dipole moment tells you polarity/separation of charges in Coulomb meters.

A debye is just a non-SI unit of electric dipole moment. It will tell you the same thing, just different units.
