Temporary Dipole Moment?

Postby Lelija Kazlauskas 3J » Sun Nov 10, 2019 7:18 pm

Is it possible to have a temporary dipole moment? Or are they permanent?

Induced dipoles are temporary interactions. A molecule with a permanent dipole would be considered polar.

Yes, most dipole moments we have discussed are temporary. Since bonds are just areas where electrons are most likely to be found, there is no "permanent" dipole moment.

Dipole moments are temporary as they are areas where an electron(s) can be found.
