induced dipole-induced dipole

Postby SarahSteffen_LEC4 » Tue Nov 19, 2019 6:17 pm

Typically, when do induced diple-induced dipole interactions occur/arise?

They can happen in all molecules. Basically, electrons move around all the time so at a certain time, there can be a lot of electrons towards one side, so it would be partially negative there at that moment, temporarily.

They pretty much happen in all molecules all of the time because the electrons are always moving and can pile up on one side temporarily at any time.

Induced dipole - induced dipole is the same as London's dispersion right? I keep hearing people refer to this intermolecular force as either induced dipole - induced dipole or London's dispersion so I just want to make sure if they mean the same thing?

Yes, induced dipole-induced dipole forces can also be considered London forces. They can also be referred to as dispersion forces, or van der Waals forces.
