If a molecule was CHClO, then is it still polar if the molecule has different dipole strengths in different directions?
Yes, it would be polar since the dipole interactions would not cancel out. Overall, this molecule would experience a net dipole moment, and it would be polar.
Because the dipole moments are not symmetrically distributed and are different strengths, there would be a net dipole moment, thus making it polar.
