In class we discussed three types of intermolecular attractive forces: hydrogen bonding, dipole-dipole and dispersion. After reading the following question enter your answers in the text field boxes and click the submit button. NOTE: When entering answers into the form use hydrogen bonding, dipole-dipole, dispersion or none.
Identify the type of intermolecular attractive force(s) that are present in phosphorus trichloride, PCl
. If only one attractive force exists enter 'none' for the secondary attractive force.
Most important attractive force :
Secondary attractive force :
