Question 16

Write the significance/applications of dipole moment.


The important significane of dipole moment are as follows:

1. For predicting the nature of the molecules- molecules with zero dipole moment are non polar while the molecule with specific dipole moment are polar in nature.

2. For determining the shape of the molecule-If a molecule has a specific dipole moment then its shape will not be symmetrical,they may be bent or angular & the molecule with zero dipole moment will be symmetrical & has linear shape.

3. For comparing the polarities of the molecules- greater the dipole moment value , more will be the polarity & vice versa.
