Calculated electric dipole moments

The electric dipole moment is a measure of the charge distribution in a molecule. The calculated dipole moments are reported as an unsigned total dipole and as three cartesians components in units of Debye.
To change units see section: FAQ Help; Units; Choose Units; Dipole and Quadrupole
