Dipole Equation- Units

Postby Henry Krasner 1C » Thu Nov 08, 2018 11:20 pm

From lecture, we learned that the dipole moment is charge x distance between atoms. How does this translate units to the dipole moment unit?

The unit for dipole moments is the debye which is 3.336x10-30 coulomb meter.

charge (coulombs) x distance (meters) = debye (coulomb meter)
