Chapter 16 Intermolecular Forces: Atoms that form stable molecules by sharing electrons intermolecular bonding Condensed states- liquids and solids Intermolecular forces- weaker interactions that occur between rather than within Ex: when water changes forms, the molecules remain intact so the change is caused by forces among the molecules rather than within Dipole-Dipole Forces: Molecules with dipole moments can attract each other electrostatically by lining up so

Unformatted text preview: that the + and – ends are close to each other • 1% as strong as covalent or ionic bonds, becomes weaker as the distance between dipoles increase • Strong dipole-dipole forces: molecules in which H is bounded to a highly electronegative atom such as N, O, or Fl (due to high polarity of the bond, hydrogen bonding) • London Dispersion Forces: • Relatively weak forces that exist among noble gas atoms and non-polar molecules •...
