The substance chlorine monoxide, ClO(g), is important in
atmospheric processes that lead to depletion of the ozone
layer. The ClO molecule has an experimental dipole moment
of 1.24 D, and the Cl¬O bond length is 160 pm. (b) Based on the
electronegativities of the elements, which atom would you
expect to have a partial negative charge in the ClO molecule?
