How to Calculate Fractional Charge?
Fractional Charge calculator uses Charge Fraction = (Dipole Moment)/(Charge of electron in Statcoulomb*Bond Length of Diatomic Molecule) to calculate the Charge Fraction, Fractional Charge is the ratio of charge present on each atom to the electronic charge. Here, charge of electron is taken in Statcoulombs where 1e = 4.8 *10^-10 StatC. Charge Fraction is denoted by δ symbol.
How to calculate Fractional Charge using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Fractional Charge, enter Dipole Moment (μ), Charge of electron in Statcoulomb (e) & Bond Length of Diatomic Molecule (d) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Fractional Charge calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.208333 = (3.33564095198152E-29)/(1.60110765695113E-19*1E-09).
