The dipole moment of CO2 is zero, which implies that:
carbon and oxygen have equal electronegativities.
carbon has no polar bond.
CO2 is a linear molecule.
carbon has bond moments of zero value.

CO2 has the structure as O=C=O in which there is bond dipole moment (C-O bond). But, as the dipole moment of one bond is cancelled by other, the structure of CO2 is a linear. So, CO2 has zero dipole moment because it is a linear molecule.

Select the molecule from the following which has polar bond but dipole moment is zero.
Dipole moment of CO2 is zero which implies that
[Assertion]:- All molecules with polar bond have non-zero dipole moments
[Reason]:- Dipole moment is a vector quantity
molecule has a zero dipole moment although the Be–H bonds are
B–Cl bond has a dipole moment, explain why BCl3
molecule has zero dipole moment.
