Problem: The forces between polar molecules is known as A. hydrogen bonding. B. ion-dipole forces. C. dipole-dipole forces. D. dispersion forces. E. ionic forces.

FREE Expert Solution

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

Hydrogen bonding – occurs in compounds where hydrogen is directly connected to an electronegative element such as N, O, or F

Dipole-dipole interaction – occurs between two polar covalent compounds

Induced-dipole interaction – occurs when a nonpolar compound interacts with a polar compound

Dispersion forces – occurs in all compounds. This is the primary intermolecular force exhibited by nonpolar compounds.
