Dipole moment

Postby 305117729 » Sun Nov 11, 2018 2:08 pm

Is there a way to determine if one molecule has net dipole moment?

To determine dipole moment, you would normally base it upon the forces present within the molecule and between molecules. So, the larger the difference in electronegativity, the larger the net dipole moment. For example, ionic bonds have higher dipole while covalent bonds do not.

So the reason why dipole force is always attractive is because molecules are always tend to be stable, and attracting each other to stay together is the way to do this?
