7th edition 3F. Question 3 part d.

Postby Ryan Danis 1J » Fri Nov 30, 2018 12:17 am

Question 3 says to identify the types of IMF’s between molecules of the following substances. Part d gives the molecule SO2. The answer says that only hydrogen bonding and dipole-dipole forces may arise. How come London forces do not apply here? Thanks!

London forces should apply here so I'm not sure why the manual says that. London forces although weak, are present between any two molecules.

It's probably just a mistake, since yes, LDF is an intermolecular force that always exists.
