### Dipole arrows

In the book, the dipole arrows are drawn with the arrow pointing to the partial positive charge. In my discussion, we had the arrow pointing towards the negative one. Which way should we draw it for the test?

We've also been drawing them from the positive to negative charge in discussion--I would just draw it like that on the test!

I am certain we will be drawing the arrows pointing towards the negative δ. A good rule of thumb is to remember that Lavelle taught us that beginning side of the arrow can be drawn with a "+" symbol to represents that it is δ+.
