On test 3, should we draw dipole moment arrows pointing toward the positive or negative dipoles? In lecture, Dr. Lavelle has them pointing toward the negative dipoles while the textbook has them pointing toward the positive dipoles
I believe it is conventional to draw the dipole arrows towards the more electronegative atom... so the atom with the partial negative charge. I would probably recommend doing that on the test, especially because Dr. Lavelle did it that way.
