# Charge and Dipole Units

The Debye is the unit for the dipole moment of molecules.
The Debye has the dimensions of charge times distance.

1 Debye is 10^{-18} statcoul cm

1 Debye is 3.335641x10^{-30} A m s

1 Debye is 3.335641x10^{-30} C m

1 Debye is 0.208194 e Å

1 Debye is 0.393430 e Bohr

1 Debye is 10^{-18} esu cm

Mulliken and CHELPG charges are given in terms of e, the charge on an electron.

1 e is 1.602176462x10^{-19} C
