Intramolecular Forces are the bonding forces within a molecule. Intermolecular Forces are the attractive forces between 2 molecules.

Intermolecular Forces

Concept #1: Intramolecular vs Intermolecular Forces

Example #1: Which forces are intramolecular and which intermolecular?

Practice: The dominant forces between molecules (intermolecular forces) are ____ in origin.

Practice: Intermolecular forces are: 

Concept #2: Types of Intermolecular Forces

Example #2: Identify the major type of intermolecular force between the particles of each of the following:

a) N2   b) CH3OH    c) CH3Cl    d) KCl & CH3OH

Practice: Which of the following intermolecular forces are found in ALL molecules?

Practice: Which of these molecules exhibit the highest number of different intermolecular forces?

Practice: It is common to add Epson salts to bath water when one has been over exercising and has sore muscles. What is the primary intermolecular force that exists between magnesium sulfate, the primary in Epson salts, and the water in the bathtub?

Practice: Which species is expected to have the largest dispersion forces?
