For which of the following molecules would the intermolecular forces be influenced mainly by London forces?
  CH3NHCH3, NH3,  H2S, NF3,  NO2


Expert Answer

Step 1

A chemical compound consists of two or more different elements which are bonded with each other through different types of chemical bonds. A chemical bond is an interaction between two atoms that occurs due to valence shell electrons of an atom.

Step 2

There are certain intermolecular forces between molecules that depends on the type of molecule. Some of them are listed below;

  • Dipole-dipole interaction
  • Ion-dipole interaction
  • Hydrogen bonds
  • Vander Waal forces or London forces.
Step 3

Out of these the Vander Waal’s interactions exist in non-polar molecules. A non-polar molecule is composed of those atoms which do not have differen...
