Dipole moments

In which direction do you draw the dipole moments for the test. Towards the more negative partial charge or towards the more positive partial charge?

I think Dr. Lavelle mentioned we would be using convention, which is drawing it towards the negative charge.

Re: Dipole moments

Dipole moments will be drawn with the arrow pointing towards the partial negative element, rather than the partial positive.

From the positive to the negative charge. Within a bond, not the entire molecule.
