Strengths if Intermolecular Forces

Postby Ivan Tadeja 4B » Sat Dec 08, 2018 6:47 pm

I remember earlier in the year when we went over the different types of bonding that take place within molecules (dispersion, dipole-dipole, hydrogen). Can somebody explain how to identify these bonds by looking at the lewis structure? Also I remember that there was an order which went from weakest to strongest, can somebody please clarify as to why these bonds have different strengths?

From least strongest to strongest, the order goes:
1. induced dipole-induced dipole (LDF/vanderwaals)
2. induced dipole-dipole
3. dipole-dipole
4. H-bonds
