So if there is a greater dipole moment, does the molecule have a stronger ionic bond? And is its potential energy greater?
Answering Victoria’s question, if there is a greater dipole moment, then yes the molecule has a stronger ionic bond between its atoms. I would think that its potential energy wouldn’t necessarily be greater, as the weakest bond, Van Der Waals, has the greatest potential energy out of all bonds/interactions
