Chemistry 83 Class08 1 Formation and Nature of the Hydrosphere Hydrosphere refers to the water portions of earth (oceans, lakes, rivers, etc) There are two types of forces associated with molecules http://www.miramar.sdccd.cc.ca.us/faculty/fgarces/ChemProj/Ch201_Sp2001/Margarita/IMF.htm Intramolecular forces - strong forces (50-1000 kcal/mole) between atoms within a molecule. Determine chemical properties. Intermolecular forces - weak forces (0.05-40 kcal/mole) between two different molecules. Determine physical properties. Van der Waals Force has three components: LDF, DDF, and H-bonding. Strong covalent bond, 103 kcal/mole Weak Van der Waals Force, 4 kcal/mole

Chemistry 83 Class08 2 London Dispersion Force (LDF) • As two molecules approach each other, the attractions and repulsions between their nuclei and electrons cause distortions of their electron arrangements producing temporary electric dipoles that attract each other http://www.lakelandschools.us/lh/lburris/pages/bonds.htm Non-polar molecules approaching each other LDF is the force of attraction between the resulting temporary fluctuating dipoles Mutual distortion http://bdml.stanford.edu/twiki/pub/Rise/InvestigationOfVanDerWaalsForce/image002.png A temporary dipole can induce a temporary dipole in an adjacent molecule. London Dispersion Force , LDF, is the force of attraction between opposite charges of adjacent temporary dipoles Induction disperses throughout all adjacent molecules resulting in LDF between all molecules in a sample LDF

Chemistry 83 Class08 3 LDF is exhibited by all molecules and ranges from 0.01 - 10 kcal/mole, depending on SIZES and SHAPES of molecules. Trends in London Dispersion Forces (LDF) Prentice Hall 2003, Chp 11 Size increases LDF increases LDF increases Size increases SIZE : LDF increases as sizes of molecules increase , since there are more electrons and they are located further from their nuclei. **BP is used as a semi-quantitative indicator of the forces of attraction between molecules since molecules must move faster to overcome an intermolecular force. *Molecular weight is used as a semi-quantitative indicator of sizes of molecules.
