Problem: Which has no dipole moment?A. CO2 B. NH3 C. H2O D. HF E. None of the above

FREE Expert Solution

Determine the Lewis structure of each compound (CO2, NH3, H­2O and HF) and figure out which has zero dipole moment

To do so, we first need to do the following steps:

Step 1: Determine the central atom in the molecule.

Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.

Step 3: Draw the Lewis structure for the molecule.

Step 4: Draw dipole arrows for each bond.
