would somebody please be able to explain to me what they are?
Van der Waals forces is a general term used to define the attraction of intermolecular forces between molecules.
Temporary dipole dipole forces due to the movement of electrons in an orbit.. Because electrons move around all the time, one side becomes positive and other negative and thus this attracts another compound that has become positive and negative in the same manner and opposites attract.. likes repel.. ?
Weak attractive forces between molecules resulting in the formation of temporary dipoles. The only for of intermolecular forces between non polar molecules
