What is dipole moment of trigonal bipyramidal symmetery molecule .....???
e.g. AX5 ; where x halogen ....
plz give any compound....we'll try to Xplain u....actually dipole moment of a compound depends on its atoms also.....so better u mention sum examples so dat we cn xplain.....
It will be zero. The two axial dipole moments cancel. On the plane the equatorial bonds are all 120 degrees apart. So they cancel.
Hope you find this useful ...
it will be ZERO
thanks every body
as u hv edited ur qsn and asking for AX5.....so i wud say dat dis molecule hs zero dipole moment.....
well i dont know whether u know or not that PCl5 is an ionic solid even though it has a trigonal bypyramidal structure. so in all cases the diople moment is not zero. nd foor proof u can see 12th ncert.
nd u can also see it in the book"consinse inorganic chemistry" by J.D. Lee on pg no 497 topic is pentahalide. nd also in the ncert 12th 1st part p-block chap topic "phosphorus"
