Problem: What is the magnitude of the dipole moment formed by separating a proton and an electron by 90 pm ?

FREE Expert Solution
  • We will be using the dipole moment equation:

  • Charges of proton and electron will appear as 1.60x10-19 C
  • Convert the distance to m to get the C•m units for dipole moment
