Enter the total charge and the distance of separation between charges into the calculator to determine the dipole moment.

Dipole Moment Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the dipole moment.

u = Q * r

  • u is the dipole moment (Debye)
  • Q is the charge (C)
  • r is the distance (m)

Dipole Moment Definition

A dipole moment is defined as the product of the charge and radius between two particles in a chemical bond.

Dipole Moment Example
