    find the magnitude of the separation of partial charges (dipole moment) read this: https://www.chem.queensu.ca/people/faculty/mombourquette/FirstYrChem/Molecular/dipole/

    we can look at the compound's solubility in solvents. the idea behind this is: polar compounds are sooluble in polar solvents and non-polar compounds in non-polar or less polar solvents, i guess this point is clear!! u might even use dipole moment measurents tooo

    i think you would run into problems if you used that method, say if you had 2 compounds with very low or very high solubilities.

    By measuring dipole moment of compound we can tell their polarity
