Identify the type of interactions in each compound (ionic, dipole -dipole, hydrogen bond, etc...)

a. PF5

b. NBr3

c. C6H6


Expert Answer

Step 1

In the PF5 molecule, the dipole moment is zero and this molecule exists in the gaseous state at normal condition, so it is expected that there is van der Waals type of interaction between the PF5 molecules.

Step 2

In the NBr3 molecule, there is a dipole-dipole type of interaction between the NBr3 molecule...
