Which out of the following will have maximum dipole moment?

Option 1) CO2

Option 2) CH4

Option 3) NH3

Option 4) NF3

As we learnt in

Resultant dipole moment -

Let XY and XZ are two polar bonds inclined at an angle \theta their dipole moments are 

 \mu _{1}\: and\: \mu _{2}

- wherein

 

 

 

Resultant\:\mu_{R}=\sqrt{\mu_{1}^{2}+\mu_{2}^{2}+2\mu_{1}\mu_{2}cos\theta}

 

 

 

Zero dipole moment -

A molecule having two or more polar bonds may have zero net  \mu when the molecule has regular structure

- wherein

Example:-

                    CCl_{4},\:PCl_{5},\:SF_{6},\:IF_{7}

                 

 

 

In NH3, H is less electronegative than N and hence dipole moment of each N—H bond is towards N and create high net dipole moment, where as in NF3, F is more electronegative than N, the dipole moment of each N—F bond is opposite to that of lone pair hence reducing the net dipole moment.
