Recall that there are several types of intermolecular forces:
1. Hydrogen bonding – occurs in compounds where hydrogen is directly connected to an electronegative element such as N, O, or F
2. Dipole-dipole interaction – occurs between two polar covalent compounds
3. Induced-dipole interaction – occurs when a nonpolar compound interacts with a polar compound
What intermolecular force is responsible for the attraction between an ion and a polar molecule?
