All molecules are polarizable to some extent. Polarizability affects dispersion forces in the following ways: As polarizability increases, the dispersion forces also become stronger. The relationship between polarizability and the factors of electron density, atomic radii, and molecular orientation. The greater the number of electrons, the less control the nuclear charge has on charge distribution, and thus the increased polarizability of the atom.
