Requirements

Which type of intermolecular attraction is strongest? Explore the different strengths of attractions between polar and nonpolar molecules. These intermolecular attractions are shown by dotted lines between the pairs of molecules. Choose a pair of molecules from the drop-down menu and "pull" on the star to separate them, paying attention to which interactions have the strongest force of attractions.
