Yes, LDF are found in all molecules as fluctuating electron density is what's causing them to occur.

Re: First Passing 14B

They just added more spots to the lectures so once your second pass starts if you have a good time you should be able to get in. In general though once a class has all the waitlisted seats taken and the professor doesn't intend to add more then you will not be able to take it.

Re: London Dispersion forces

I remember in lecture that Lavelle said dispersion interactions are always present/occurring because of electron density fluctuating which causes fluctuating induced dipole- induced dipole moments.

Re: Textbook Question 2A3

From what I understand elements with d orbitals does start at the fourth period, however, when writing electron configurations it first appears as 3d then 4d and so on. This is why As has 3d^10 because it appears at the 4th period.

Re: Sapling #28 Homework

For this question the answer is 0. In order to find the ml you first need to determine l and in this case it is zero because it is a s orbital. From there, the possible values for ml are values between -l and l but because for this problem l is zero then ml can only be zero.

From what I understand ml represents the different orbitals within a subshell and the orientation of angular momentum. To find the values of ml using l you would just include all numbers from -l to l For example if l=3, then ml could range from -l to l so the corresponding values would be -3,-2,-1,0...
