how do you determine if a molecule has a dipole moment?

You can determine that molecules have a dipole moment by looking at the difference in values for electronegativity. More the difference, more likely that molecule has dipole moment. (Since dipole moment is all about which element will pull the electron more within the bond)

Dipoles are the partial negative and partial positive charges on molecules which have atoms with a notable difference in electronegativity. We can figure out if a molecule will have a dipole by calculating the difference in electronegativity between atoms.

A molecule has a dipole moment if it has a partial negative a positive charge due to uneven sharing or electrons.

what is the cutoff for difference on electronegativity that we can determine a dipole interaction?
