Forces Present in molecules

Postby Alan Chang » Sat Dec 08, 2018 6:15 pm

How can we know what type of forces are present in different molecules? For example, how can we know if a molecule undergoes dipole dipole, dipole induced dipole, or other types of forces?

You can know what type of intermolecular forces a molecule goes through by know its shape and polarity. By knowing that there is a dipole in a molecule, you will know that opposite dipoles of molecules with attract.

van der waals happens everywhere, dipole dipole would happen if there are multiple polar molecules, and dipole induced dipole can occur with one polar and one nonpolar

Vanderwals occur in every molecule, dipole-dipole occurs in polar molecules, and induced-dipole occurs with one polar and non-polar molecule.
