Solution: What type(s) of intermolecular forces are expected between GeH4 molecules? Indicate with a Y (yes) or an N (no) which apply.(i) dipole forces (ii) induced dipole forces (iii) hydrogen bonding


What type(s) of intermolecular forces are expected between GeH4 molecules? 

Indicate with a Y (yes) or an N (no) which apply.

(i) dipole forces 

(ii) induced dipole forces 

(iii) hydrogen bonding


GeH4 follows a tetrahedral structure similar to CH4. This molecule is non-polar due to its symmetrical shape.
