Dipole-dipole & dipole-induced dipole

Postby Lorena Zhang 4E » Thu Nov 22, 2018 10:36 pm

For assigned problem 3F.9, it asks us to place ion-dipole, dipole-induced dipole, dipole dipole in the gas phase, ion-ion, dipole-dipole in the solid phase in order of increasing strength. The answer shows that dipole induced dipole is similar to dipole dipole. I don’t quite understand why.

I am also confused because wouldn't dipole induced dipole be weaker than dipole-dipole?
