Intermolecular Forces (99 Favorites)

SIMULATION in Physical Properties, Intermolecular Forces, Polarity, Covalent Bonding, Molecular Geometry, Lewis Structures. Last updated March 15, 2022.


In this simulation, students will review the three major types of intermolecular forces—London dispersion forces, dipole-dipole interactions, and hydrogen bonding—through short video clips and accompanying text. They will then answer quiz questions using the relative strengths of these forces to compare different substances given their name, formula, and Lewis structure, and put them in order based on the strength of their intermolecular forces, their boiling point, or their vapor pressure.
