When and why do dipoles occur?

Dipole moments happen when there is a difference in charge due to an unequal sharing of electrons between atoms within a molecule. This causes one part of the molecule to become slightly negative and the other slightly positive. They from due to attractions between other molecules.

Dipoles occur from the difference in electronegativity between 2 ions causing an unequal sharing of electrons. The dipole moment measures the polarity of the molecule.
