🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Mandelshtam's class at UCI.

Solution: Which of the following exhibit only London (dispersion) forces?a) Heb) H2Oc) Cl2d) HCl

Problem

Which of the following exhibit only London (dispersion) forces?

a) He

b) H2O

c) Cl2

d) HCl

Solution
  • We are looking for the molecule/atom with only London dispersion forces, no H-bondings, dipole-dipole or ion dipole. 

  • A molecule with only LDF tells us that it is a nonpolar molecule/atom
