Metallic Bond

Metallic Bond Generally metallic bond is observed in metals. Metal atom prefers to have maximum number of atoms around it. As distance between atoms is......

Vander Waals Bond

Vander Waals Bond A universal weak attractive force acts between nearby atoms. The mutual interaction by which this force of attraction is created is called......

Covalent Bond

During chemical interaction, of two atoms of the same element or different elements, if transfer of outer-shell electrons is not possible, then by sharing of......

Ionic Bond or Electrovalent bond

Ionic Bond While mixing a metal with a non-metal normally one or more electrons are donated by metal atom to non-metal atom. Consequently metal atom......

Inter Atomic Force in Gases

Inter Atomic Force in Gases Interatomic distance in gases is very large and interatomic force is very small compared to solids and liquids. So, in......

Bonding of Matter

Bonding of Matter Whatever we see around us, all of them are either elements or compounds. In materials there are innumerable numbers of molecules. Molecules......

Inter Molecular Attractive

Inter Molecular Attractive All materials are composed of very tiny particles called atoms and molecules. Within these atoms and molecules there exist different types of attraction.......

Inter Atomic Force in Solids

Inter Atomic Force in Solids Solid body has fixed shape and volume. Due to strong attracting force particles remain very close to each other. Inter......

Inter Atomic Force in Liquids

Inter Atomic Force in Liquids In liquid state, inter-atomic force between particles constituting the material is relatively small. For this, the particles do not remain......

Hydrogen Bonding: Description in terms of Inter-molecular Forces

Hydrogen bonding Strong forces of attraction exist between molecules containing a hydrogen atom bonded to a highly electronegative element such as nitrogen, oxygen or fluorine.......

Intramolecular Hydrogen Bonding: Definition in terms of Inter-molecular Forces

Intramolecular hydrogen bonding (i.e. hydrogen bonding between the hydrogen atom in one part of the molecule with an electronegative atom like oxygen or nitrogen in......

Why Dispersion Forces Depend on two Aspects of Molecular Structure?

Dispersion forces depend on two aspects of molecular (or atomic) structure. First, they increase in magnitude with the size and number of electrons and protons......
