Among NH3 or NF3, which one has greater dipole moment?

Answers (1)


NH3 has higher dipole moment than NF3 as in case of NH3, nitrogen is more electronegative than hydrogen, so it tries to pull the electrons from hydrogen atoms where as in case of NF3, fluorine being more electronegative than nitrogen tries to pull the electrons from nitrogen opposite from that of nitrogen.
