What type of intermolecular forces are due to the attraction between temporary dipoles and their induced temporary dipoles?

London dispersion forces are electrostatic interactions that occur between two nonpolar molecules


Which of the following compounds cannot exhibit hydrogen bonding?

CH4 has neither a hydrogen atom bonded to N, O or F nor an electronegative atom having a lone pair of electrons ⇒ This molecule cannot exhibit a hydrogen bond


What is the normal boiling point of a liquid?

The normal boiling point is the temperature at which vapor pressure = atmospheric pressure (1 atm)


Where on a phase diagram can you find conditions under which only one phase exists?


What is the property responsible for the ‘beading up’ of water?

Surface tension is the energy required to increase the surface area of a liquid and is therefore responsible for the 'beading up' of water


What is the consequence of large intermolecular forces in a substance?
