Question

 

The HCl molecule is polar with a dipole moment and a negative partial charge at the chlorine atom and a net positive partial charge at the hydrogen atom. From infrared spectroscopy, the bond length of a HCl molecule is calculated to be 0.13 nm. If you model the HCl molecule as a dipole of charges and separated a distance 0.13 nm, what is the charge in the model?
