Dipole-Dipole vs. Ion-Dipole

Postby Aman Sankineni 2L » Thu Nov 14, 2019 1:16 am

Why does the strength of the interaction in dipole-dipole forces depend more heavily on distance than the strength of interaction in ion-dipole forces?

For ion-dipole, you have an ion which carries a charge, thus it has to be considered when evaluating IMF, while dipole-dipole solely depends on dipole moment and size of the molecule.

Also, ion-dipole interactions are stronger than dipole-dipole interactions.
