We are being asked to determine which molecule has a nonzero dipole moment.
To do this, we are going to draw the dipole moments on each molecule and see if they cancel.
Part A. Which of these AF3 molecules will have a nonzero dipole moment?
Choose all that apply.
Part B. Which of the following AF4 molecules will have a zero dipole moment?
Choose all that apply
