Question

Which is the Molecule with highest dipole moment?
a) CH3Cl or
b) CHCl3
How to find out?


Solution

In CH3Cl the polarity vectors of 3 H atoms and Cl atoms add up and give it a large dipole moment..

In CHCl3 the polarity vector of only one H atom adds up and 3 Cl atoms cancel each others effect and give it a much smaller dipole moment...
