London Forces??

Postby Jedrick Zablan 3L » Mon Nov 11, 2019 10:25 am

Do all molecules have London forces? If so why? Thanks.

Dispersion forces are present between all molecules, whether they are polar or nonpolar. All molecules have dispersion forces because to have a dispersion force a molecule needs electrons, and since all molecules have electrons all molecules have dispersion forces.

All molecules have London dispersion forces due to the constant movement of electrons and the arising variations in the arrangement of electrons around a molecule.

All molecules have London forces. These forces happen as a result of the random, uneven electron distribution around molecules. The more electrons an atom has, the stronger these forces will be.
