Dipole arrows are used anytime a molecule possesses a dipole moment, which happens when a molecule is polar. 

Electronegativity and Dipole Moment

Concept #1: Electronegativity

Moving towards the top right corner of the Periodic Table causes Electronegativity to increase.

Example #1: Which of the following represents the most electronegative alkaline earth metal?

Concept #2: Dipole Moment

Example #2: Calculate the difference in electronegativity values between carbon and fluorine.

Practice: Arrange the following molecules in order of decreasing dipole moment.

H–I           H–F         H–Br         H–Cl

Concept #3: Further Chemical Bond Classifications

Example #3: For those listed below, which has the most polar bond?

Practice: Which of the following correctly identifies the chemical bond between a carbon and oxygen atom?

a) Polar Covalent

b) Pure Covalent

c) Nonpolar 

d) Ionic

Practice: Between which two elements is the difference in electronegativity the greatest?

Practice: Which of the following correctly identifies the chemical bond between two bromine atoms?
