What I am asking about is dipoles. I understand the concept of increased electron attraction of some atoms, and the resultant electron cloud distortion to reveal more of the nucleus of one atom, and less of the nucleus of the other, but partial charges? As far as I understand, something either IS or ISN't. There is no room in science (so much has been yelled at me before) for fuzzy relationships. SO, what is partial charge? Is it positive or not? Is it negative or not? ACK! Ray
