Intermolecular Forces and VSEPR

Postby zoedfinch1K » Sun Nov 17, 2019 7:01 pm

How do we predict the intermolecular forces between molecules by using the VSEPR model?

All moelcules have LDF interactions between them. Hydrogen bonding is determined by the presence of H with an N, O, or F. The VSEPR model is used to see if a molecule is polar, which would determine whether there are dipole-dipole interactions or ion-dipole or dipole-induced- dipole interactions

The strongest intermolecular force is a hydrogen bond, which occurs between molecules that include Hydrogen and Fluorine, Oxygen, or Nitrogen.
