In the notes, it says that dipole-dipole, dipole-induced dipole, and induced dipole-induced dipole all typically have around -2 kJ/mol of E. However, I thought that the order of IMF strength went from dipole-dipole > dipole-induced dipole > induced dipole-induced dipole? Can someone clarify this for me?
You are correct in the order of the forces. I think the numbers he gave us in class were not related to strength of the forces but rather the energy of the forces. Since we do not need to know those values, I would just put those to the side and go off of the fact that dipole-dipole is greater than dipole-induced dipole which is greater than London forces.
