Chemistry Intermolecular Forces Solution: What is the strongest type of intermolecular force...

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

Solution: What is the strongest type of intermolecular force between solute and solvent in the following solution?CH3OCH3(g) in H2O(l)a) ion-dipoleb) H bondc) dipole-dipoled) ion-induced dipolee) dipole-induced dipolef) dispersion

Problem

What is the strongest type of intermolecular force between solute and solvent in the following solution?

CH3OCH3(g) in H2O(l)

a) ion-dipole

b) H bond

c) dipole-dipole

d) ion-induced dipole

e) dipole-induced dipole

f) dispersion

Solution

  • If we will analyze the molecule, CH3OCHappears to have an electronegative atom O which is capable of interacting with positive species

  • In this case, H2has Hs on it which are partially positive due to the O which pulls the electron away from H
