Technology / Home Audio / Dipole: A speaker design that uses two sets of drivers to generate equal amounts of sound both forward and backward, or side to side, with the two sounds being 'out of phase.' Dipoles are often used as surround speakers, and are very effective at creating a diffuse soundfield when placed on the sides of the listening position. Some speakers offer both dipole and bipole modes.
Science / Chemistry / Dipole-Dipole Interaction: Electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged poles of two or more dipoles. MORE
Science / Chemistry / Electric Dipole Moment: A measure of the degree of polarity of a polar molecule. Dipole moment is a vector with magnitude equal to charge separation times the distance between the centers of positive and negative charges. Ch MORE
