A dipole moment is an electrical movement from one atom toward one adjacent atom. Dipole moments do not occur with diatomic molecules because the two atoms have the same electronegativity. Dipole moments also determine covalent bond disassociation.
A dipole is when a positively charged atom bonds with a negatively charged atom. The electronegative force between the two atoms is not the same, thus a dipole moment happens which is that one of the atoms is more electronegative than the other.
