Formal Charge and Coulombic Attraction

Postby Jake Ney lecture 1 discussion 1F » Sat Oct 17, 2015 5:15 pm

Is it necessary to calculate the formal charge of two molecules to determine their coulombic attraction to one another? Furthermore how do you calculate the coulombic attraction of an ion to a solid?

One does not use formal charge to determine coulombic attractions.
