  • question_answer Predict which out of the following molecules will have higher dipole moment and why? \[C{{S}_{2}}\] and \[OCS\]

    Answer:

                     and  both are linear molecules but bond moments in \[C{{S}_{2}}\] cancel out so that net dipole moment = 0. But in OCS, bond moment of C = O is not equal to that of C = S. Hence, it has a net dipole moment. Thus, dipole moment of OCS is higher.
