Differences between the intermolecular forces
Posted: Fri Nov 08, 2019 6:23 pm
Dr. Lavelle uses the terms dipole-dipole, LDF, and van der waals forces interchangeably. In high school I was taught the difference between these forces and was responsible for naming the most prominent kind of intermolecular force in a certain molecule. In this class, do we just consider them interchangeable and are we not responsible for knowing the differences between them?
