Dipole Moment Units

Postby TiffanyL1G » Thu Nov 08, 2018 9:45 pm

What are the units used for Dipole Moment? I know the equation is dipole moment (mu) = charge (q) x distance between atoms (bond length) [d], but what exactly does this measure and what units are each variable?

This measures the polarity of a bond within a molecule and is measured in coulomb-meters.

Do we have to know how to solve that equation? Did he go over that in lecture?
