#### Answer:

You have a dipole moment when there is a difference in electronegativity between two atoms.

#### Explanation:

For example,

H-Cl, hydrogen is partially positive while Cl is partially negative. This means that the electrons hang around the Cl more than the H. Therefore, H is left with a partially positive charge.
