Problem

What is the strongest type of intermolecular force present in CHF 3?

a. dispersion

b. dipole-dipole

c. hydrogen bonding

d. ion-dipole

e. none of the above

Solution

  • First step is draw the Lewis structure of the molecule

  • C will appear as our central atom since it's less electronegative than F. (H can't be a central atom)
