Vector Addition

Postby Parsia Vazirnia 2L » Fri Oct 28, 2016 10:26 pm


Can someone summarize adding vectors and vector addition for dipoles and figuring out the net dipole.

if the dipole moment vectors go in opposing directions then they cancel out. This leaves a net dipole moment of zero and the molecule is non-polar. If the dipole moment vectors do not cancel then the molecule is polar
