Problem: Neon atoms are attracted to each other by A) hydrogen bonding. B) dipole-dipole forces. C) intramolecular forces. D) London dispersion forces. E) covalent bonding.

FREE Expert Solution

Types of intermolecular forces:

1. Ion-dipole interaction – between an ion and a polar covalent compound

2. Hydrogen bonding – hydrogen is bonded to an electronegative atom

3. Dipole-dipole interaction – between two polar covalent compounds

4. Induced-dipole interaction – between a nonpolar compound and a polar compound

5. Dispersion forces – occurs in all compounds
