The Van der waals' forces are dominant intermolecular forces in_______?
The Van der Waals' forces are dominant intermolecular forces in Chlorine. Van der Waals' forces are weak intermolecular forces that exist between molecules due to temporary changes in electron density. These forces arise due to the attraction between the positively charged nucleus of one molecule and the negatively charged electrons of another molecule. Chlorine is a non-polar molecule, which means it has no net dipole moment. Van der Waals' forces are the strongest intermolecular forces acting between non-polar molecules, and as Chlorine is non-polar, it is the dominant intermolecular force acting between Chlorine molecules.
