Q. 2.1

Predicting the Direction of a Dipole moment

Make a three-dimensional drawing of methylamine, {CH_3}{NH_2} , and show the direction of its dipole moment (µ= 1.31).

S t r a t e g y
Look for any lone-pair electrons, and identify any atom with an electronegativity substantially different from that of carbon. (Usually, this means O, N, F, Cl, or Br.) Electron density will be displaced in the general direction of the electronegative atoms and the lone pairs.

Step-by-Step

Verified Solution

Methylamine has an electronegative nitrogen atom with a lone pair of electrons. The dipole moment thus points generally from –CH_3 toward the lone pair

Make a three-dimensional drawing of methylamine, CH3 NH2 , and show the direction of its dipole moment (µ= 1.31).
