The dipole moment of a molecule is calculated by multiplying the magnitude of the charge (in coulombs) by the distance between the charges (in meters). Mathematically, it is expressed as:

[\text{Dipole moment} (\mu) = \text{charge} (Q) \times \text{distance} (r)]

Where,

- Dipole moment ((\mu)) is measured in Debye (D)
- Charge (Q) is measured in coulombs (C)
- Distance (r) is measured in meters (m)

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
