  16. What is a Dipole Moment?
    The electric dipole moment for a pair of opposite charges of magnitude q is defined as the magnitude of the charge times the distance between them and the defined direction is toward the positive charge.Image Upload
  17. What are polar molecules? Give examples of when molecules are polar.
    A polar molecule is one with a permanent Dipole Moment. A polar molecule must have a slightly positive end opposite a slightly negative one.Molecules that have 'low' symmetry will always have at least a small dipole moment and therefore be referred to as polar. Examples of such low symmetry molecular shapes include:


    • Bent molecules, eg. waterImage Upload
    • T-shaped molecules, eg. IF3
    • See-Saw molecules, eg. SF4Image Upload

  18. What is the difference between Intramolecular forces and Intermolecular forces?
    The Intermolecular Forces (forces between molecules) are weaker than Intramolecular Forces (The Chemical Bonds within an Individual Molecule).
