Do all molecules have LDF? And when can I tell if a molecule has dipole-induced dipole?

Yes, all molecules have LDF. Induced-dipole dipole occurs between a polar molecule and a non-polar molecule.

I hope this helps!

Yes. London forces exist among all molecules. A induced dipole occurs on non-polar molecules that got close to polar molecules. The uneven electronic distribution in unpolar molecules would change the distribution of electrons in non-polar molecules.

Yes, all molecules have LDF. Dipole-induced dipole occurs between an ion and non-polar molecule.

LDF exists between all molecules because electrons move randomly.
