The intermolecular forces between molecules of isopropyl alcohol are in the form of hydrogen bonds, where a partially positive hydrogen atom of one molecule experiences a strong attractive force to a partially negative o... More »

Hydrogen bonds form because of the attraction between a slightly positive hydrogen atom of one molecule and the slightly negative atom of another molecule. Differences in electronegativity between the hydrogen atom and t... More »

Hydrogen bonding is a force of attraction between a slightly positive hydrogen of one molecule to a slightly negative region of another molecule. An individual hydrogen bond is not very strong, but in large numbers, hydr... More »

The molecule known as CH4, or methane, is affected by van der Waals forces between individual molecules. Van der Waals forces are created when the molecule temporarily becomes electrically charged due to the natural move... More »

The structural formula of methanol is represented by one carbon atom bonded to one oxygen atom and three hydrogen atoms, with the oxygen atom bonded to another hydrogen atom. The carbon atom has zero lone pairs, while th... More »

Intermolecular forces are the attractive forces between molecules that hold them together. There are four types of intermolecular forces: hydrogen bonds and ionic, dipole and induced dipole forces. More »

The two elements that make up a molecule of water are hydrogen and oxygen; there are two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, resulting in the chemical formula H2O. Hydrogen and oxygen bond together due to the number of e... More »
