Sapling #20

"Select which intermolecular forces of attraction are present between CH3CHO molecules" How do you determine what intermolecular forces of attraction are present just by given the molecular formula?

How I did it was I drew the Lewis structure for CH3CHO and used that to determine which interactions were present. I'm not sure if there's a method to determine by just using the formula, but drawing the Lewis structure should be helpful.

Yes I just drew the molecule and then determined the interactive forces on each individual bond.
