Molecular Polarity

The polarity from each bond between atoms of different electronegativity and the shape of the molecule can be used to determine the overall polarity of molecules with more than one bond. Each bond’s dipole moment can be treated as a vector quantity with a magnitude and direction. Therefore, the molecular polarity results from the vector sum of the individual bond dipoles.
