Question

The attractive forces between polar molecules are known as ________ forces and between non-polar molecules are known as ______ forces.
  1. London dispersion, Dipole-dipole
  2. Ion-dipole, Dipole-dipole
  3. Dipole-induced dipole, London dispersion
  4. Dipole-dipole, London dispersion


Solution

The correct option is D Dipole-dipole, London dispersion
The intermolecular attractive forces between two polar molecules would be dipole-dipole interactions.
London dispersion force is a temporary attractive force that results when the electron cloud in two adjacent atoms/molecules occupy positions that make the atoms/molecules form momentary dipoles. London forces are the attractive forces between non-polar molecules.
