Covalent Bonding

Which statement(s) is/are correct about dipole moment. 

 I. 1 Debye is equivalent to 3.33×1030Cm

 II. 1 Debye is equivalent to 1018 esu. 

 III. SI unit of dipole moment is coulomb meter (Cm)

IV. Dipole moment of a molecule is useful to explain the shape of a molecule and also to predict other properties of the molecule. 


The dipole moment is used to find the polar nature of the bond. As the magnitude of dipole moment increases, more will be the polar nature of the bond in a molecule. Molecules with zero dipole moment are non-polar in nature, while molecules with dipole moment are said to be polar in nature.
