Is the intermolecular force, LDF, found in all molecules?

LDFs are found in every molecule since the only requirement to create it is chance - electrons being concentrated on one side of an atom/molecule.

Hope that helps!

Yup! Also remember to review which ones are stronger, more common, or like Hydrogen bonds (are only selective to certain elements.)

Yes. ALso, I believe LDF is interchangeable with quite a few other names (such as induced-dipole induced-dipole), so if you look those up you'll be able to recognize that IMFs that occur in all molecules.
Also, it's helpful for the tests.

Yes all molecules contain the intermolecular LDF.

Yes, all molecules have LDFs. LDFS are dependent on the number of electrons in the molecule because the more electrons in the molecule, the stronger the temporary dipole force of the molecule is.

While LDF is found between all molecules, it would only be important to point this out when dealing with two non-polar molecules.

All molecules contain LDF, but they can also contain additional molecular forces such as hydrogen and dipole-dipole.
