  • Van Der Waal's Forces
    • The movement of electrons in shells unbalances the distribution of the charge in electron pairs.
      • An instantaneous dipole is formed due to the unbalanced distribution of electrons
        • The instantaneous dipole induces a dipole in neighbouring molecules, which then induce further molecules
          • The induced dipole attract each other forming weak intermolecular forces known as Van Der Waals'
