dipole moments

Postby AMahadi » Sun Dec 01, 2019 7:29 pm

do all polar molecules have dipole moments?

Yep. Nonpolar molecules could have dipole moments as well that happen to cancel each other out.

Yes, polar molecules possess a permanent dipole moment.

Yes. If you draw a Lewis structure with a dipole it is polar. Sometimes, a molecule will have dipole movements but cancel each other out. In this case, the molecular is going to be non polar.

Should we only know how to identify dipole-dipole, induced dipole, and h-bonding?

By definition Molecules that contain dipoles are called polar molecules, so yes the two can't be separated.
