The dipole moment (μmu) of HBr (a polar covalent molecule) is 0.790D (debye), and its percent ionic character is 11.7 % . Estimate the bond length of the H−BrNote that
Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units.
The dipole moment, μmu, of a bond can be calculated from the equation where QQ is the magnitude of the partial charges and rr is the bond length.
