Unformatted text preview: Although a polar bond is a prerequisite for a molecule to have a dipole, not all molecules with polar bonds exhibit dipoles AB n molecules and non-polar geometries For AB n molecules, where the central atom A is surrounded by identical atoms for B, there a certain molecular geometries which result in no effective dipole , regardless of how polar the individual bonds may be. These geometries are:...
