Which have a molecular dipole moment?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Out of the given molecules BrF3 and SCl2 will have a resultant dipole moment due to their arrangement of atoms. In case of CF4, SF6 and BF3 the dipoles cancel each other and overall these structures do not possess any dipole moment.

Step 2

BrF3 has a T-shaped structure and hence the molecule is polar and has a dipole moment. SCl2 has a bent structure and hence it makes the molecule polar and possess a dipole moment.

CF4 has a symmetrical tetrahedral arrangement of atoms and hence the dipole moments cancel each other. Hence it does not poss...
