List the intermolecular forces between molecules of 1,3-dimethylcyclohexane

Aug 23rd, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

alkanes the only significant intermolecule force is the VanderWaals interaction . This attractive force results from charge-charge interactions between molecules due to transient uneven distributions of electrons. Extra electron density in one part of a molecule (resulting in slight negative charge) repels the electrons density in a neighboring molecule (resulting in a slight positve charge). The positive and negative charges attract. The more carbons there are in a hydrocarbon.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

So to answer the question I would talk about VanderWalls interactions?  The question itself implies multiple answers what else should I look at for the intermolecular forces?
