Solution: Rank the following types of intermolecular forces in general order of decreasing strength (strongest to weakest).London dispersion, ion-dipole, hydrogen bonding, dipole-dipole

Problem

Rank the following types of intermolecular forces in general order of decreasing strength (strongest to weakest).

London dispersion, ion-dipole, hydrogen bonding, dipole-dipole

Solution

London Dispersion (or Van der Waals Forcers): 

• present in all molecules
• they're not exhibiting anything, they're just there
• weakest of all the intermolecular forces
