High polarisability increases the strength of_________


High polarisability increases the strength of attractive interactions.

The electron cloud can be easily distorted, and electrons can be easily drawn away from the central atom, if the polarizability is high. Since the electron is pushed further between the two bonding molecules, they form bonds with a higher covalent character. The dispersion forces become stronger as polarizability increases, so molecules are more strongly attracted to each other, contributing for the increase in polarizability.
