Problem: What is the magnitude of the dipole moment formed by separating a proton and an electron by 180 pm ?

FREE Expert Solution

We have to calculate the magnitude of dipole moment when a proton and an electron are separated by a distance of 180 pm.


Dipole moment (μ) is defined as the product of charge separation (bond length) and the magnitude of charges.

μ = q·r

Where,

μ = dipole moment

q = magnitude of charge

r = bond length
