Strength

Postby 905174774 » Sat Dec 07, 2019 11:27 am

I am having a hard time trying to figure out the strengths of each of the bonds. Like strongest to weakest.

The strength increases in the following order: London/induced-dipole < dipole-dipole < hydrogen < ionic. Covalent bond is stronger than ionic bond if the ionic compounds are in water.

Where does ion - dipole fit into this?

Ion-dipole is weaker than ionic, but stronger than the rest.

Are LDF present in all molecules?

yes London Forces are present in all molecules

Yes, it is the weakest relative to the others and its strength (compared to other molecules with only LDFs present) increases with size.
