Dipole moment is a vector quantity. A 'Vector' is a Physical quantity which has both Magnitude as well as Direction. For eg. Force is a vector quantity.


Dipole Moment is a measure of polarity of covalent bond.
Covalent bonds become polarised due to electronegativity difference between atoms in which covalent bond is present.
#vec μ#= q x #vecd# [ "#vec#" this is the symbol of vector quantity]

μ is the Dipole Moment

q is the charge

d is the separation between the charges
