    dipole moments refer to covalent compounds not elements of the periodic table.

    Generally speaking, electronegativity increases going from left to right and bottom to top, with flourine being the most electronegative atom; the greater the difference in electronegativity between two atoms the larger the dipole.

    drunken thought... as the distance from right to left inccreased dipole moment increses?

    Absolutely. That is indeed a drunken thought.
