Power of Dipoles

Postby mayapartha_1D » Sun Nov 19, 2017 8:57 pm

Is it possible to measure the power of a dipole moment? A.k.a. are there dipole moments that are stronger than others?

yes the greater the electronegativity the greater the dipole moment. Dipole moment can also be measured in units of debyes.

To expand, Lavelle went over it in his lecture on 11/1, and the equation looked like this:

u = qr

u being the dipole moment in debyes
q being the separate charges
and r being the distance between atoms
