BMB428 Dr. Song Tan Physical Chemistry with Biological Applications Fall 2007 1 Problem Set 17: Intermolecular Forces Due Oct 30, 2007 1. Problem 13.5 (p. 511): List the types of intermolecular forces that exist between molecules (or basic units) in each of the following species: (a) benzene (C 6 H 6 ) (b) CH 3 Cl (c) PF 3 (d) NaCl (e) CS 2 2. What are van der Waal forces? 3. Problem 13.10 (p. 511): Differentiate Equation 16.21 with respect to r to obtain an expression for σ and ε . Express the equilibrium distance, r e , in terms of σ , and show that V = - ε . 4. Problem 13.14 (p. 512): If water were a linear molecule, (a) would it still be polar and (b) would the water molecules still be able to form hydrogen bonds with one another?
