Electric dipole moment
Electric dipole moment is a measure of the degree of polarity of the polar molecule. Dipole moment is a vector with magnitude equal to charge separation times the distance between the centers of positive and negative charges. Chemists point the vector (Electric dipole moment) from the positive to the negative pole, physicists point in the opposite way. Dipole moments are often expressed in units called debyes.
