List the four types of intermolecular forces discussed in this chapter in order of increasing relative strength.
Step 1 of 3
There are four types of intermolecular forces. These are as follows.
Dispersion force: It is present in all kinds of atoms and molecules. Dispersion force results due to the distribution of electrons within the atoms or molecules.
For example: He, Ne, n-pentane etc.
Dipole- Dipole force: It is exist in polar molecules. For example : CH2Cl2
Hydrogen bonding: It contains in polar molecule which have H-atom. For example: HF, H2O etc.
Ion-dipole force: It occurs when polar compound and ionic compound interact with each other. For example: When NaCl is mixed with H2O molecule.
The increasing order of relative strength of the following intermolecular forces are given below.
Dispersion force < Dipole-dipole interaction < Hydrogen-bonding < Ion-dipole force
