what is the direction and how do you find it for the dipole moment in scl2?
to the 2 or the cl?

  • chemistry -

    Electrons move toward the Cl end, so the Sc end will be +

  • chemistry -

    Electronegativity for S is about 2.6 and that of Cl is about 3.1. +sign goes on more positive (S) with arrow to more negative (Cl).
