    Hi guys,

    Can someone help me define each variable in this equation please?

    Name:  dipole-dipole equation.png

    Also what does the alpha ' apostrophe mean in the equation below? I know alpha = polarizability

    Finally, do you know any sites or worksheets where I can practice using the physical bonds equations?

    Thank you for any help

    mu will be the dipole moment (mu is a greek letter)
    epsilon 0 is the vacuum permittivity
    k is probably boltzmann constant
    T may be temperature, but I rather doubt that one. GO do some research into coulomb potentials btw.....

    alpha prime will be the polarisability and r the separation of the two particles
