The forces that hold different atoms together are intramolecular forces called bonds. Additionally, there are interactive forces between atoms of different molecules, like the van der Waals force, but these are much weak... More »

The strong nuclear force, one of the four fundamental universal forces, is responsible for holding atoms together. Without it, the nucleus, consisting of positive protons and neutral neutrons, would have nothing to stop ... More »

The two forces that hold atoms together in a molecule are the electric force and the nuclear force. These forces bind the three parts of an atom, which include electrons, neutrons and protons. More »

The stability of carbocations is affected by neighboring carbon atoms, neighboring lone pairs and carbon-carbon multiple bonds. When a carbon atom forms a bond with three carbon atoms, it results in carbocation. More »

Atoms form bonds with other atoms because of the electrostatic attraction between positively-charged protons and negatively-charged electrons. When this force of attraction brings atoms together to form substances contai... More »
