Accurate results are obtained if water is considered to be an electric quadrupole with four centers of charge, two partial positive charges near the hydrogen nuclei and two partial negative charges on the non-bonded electron orbitals near the oxygen nucleus. A further improvement in the calculated enthalpy of hydration is obtained when the polarizability (a) of the water dipole by the ion is taken into account. The electric field of the ion distorts the electron cloud of the hydration water along its permanent dipole axis, thus inducing an additional increment of charge separation and increasing the dipole moment.

The magnitude of the dipole moment (m) of a chemical bond is computed as the product of the separated charge (q) at either end, and the distance (d) between the centers of separated charge (m ¼ qd). The dipole moment of a molecule is the vector sum of the dipole moments of each bond. 85 debye, where 1 debye ¼ 10À18 esu$cm. 336 Â 10À10 C, the coulomb (C) being a unit of electric charge. 5 debye) due to association with other water molecules. In comparison, the linear molecule carbon dioxide (O¼C¼O) also has a separation of charge, with a partial negative charge on each oxygen atom and a partial positive charge on the carbon atom.
