Answer

See explanation below.

Work Step by Step

a.) SO2 would have the greater dipole moment because this is a polar molecule with a net dipole while SO3 is nonpolar due to all of its dipoles canceling out. b.) IF would have a greater dipole moment because IF's electronegativity difference is (1.3) is larger than that of ICl (0.3) c.) SF4 wold have the greater dipole moment because SF4 is a polar molecule with a net dipole while SiF4 is nonpolar due to its dipoles all canceling out. d.) H2O would have a greater dipole moment because the electronegativity difference of O-H bonds (1.4) is greater than that of S-H bonds (0.4)
