Below are the lewis structures for dimethyl ether and acetone. My chemistry textbook indicates that acetone has a larger dipole moment than dimethyl ether. I am familiar with dipole moments and the fact they are created by an unequal sharing of electron density. However I do not understand why acetone is more polar than dimethyl ether. My best guess is that having an extra carbon provides more electrons which allows the molecule to establish a larger difference in electron density between the oxygen and the rest of the molecule. I am unsure if this is correct and would greatly appreciate a more in depth explanation.
