Worksheet: Partial Ionic Character

In this worksheet, we will practice calculating the partial ionic character of atoms based on the bond or molecular dipole.

Q1:

The HCl molecule has a bond length of 0.127 nm and a dipole moment of 1.08 D. By calculating the dipole moment for the completely ionic system, estimate the partial charge of the Cl atom to 2 significant figures.

Q2:

The HI molecule has a bond length of 0.161 nm and a dipole moment of 0.42 D. By calculating the dipole moment for the completely ionic system, estimate the partial charge of the I atom to 2 significant figures.
